Bergdahl’s Platoon Members: ‘He Violated His Oath When He Deserted Us’

‘Those soldiers would not have been there at that location that they died ... if he didn’t desert, because then we wouldn’t have [had] a mission to find him’

Members of Bergdahl’s Platoon Speak Out: ‘Violated His Oath When He Deserted Us’ (Mediaite)

Cody Full and Gerald Sutton, men who served in Bowe Bergdahl‘s platoon, spoke out in an interview with Megyn Kelly tonight. They described Bergdahl as an unequivocal deserter whose actions led to the deaths of other soldiers. Full said he heard Bergdahl “talking about the terrain extensively” and talking to the Afghan national police with a clear “agenda” in mind.

He told Kelly, “He did not serve the United States with honor. We all took an oath. He violated his oath when he deserted us and put other Americans in jeopardy.”

Sutton said that he doesn’t want to see someone like Bergdahl “hailed as a hero” when he should be court-martialed. Kelly pointed out how President Obama emphasized the importance of leaving no one behind. Full agreed with that sentiment, but said Bergdahl needs to be held accountable for his actions anyway.
