If he is found guilty of desertion, do the taxpayers get that money back?
I doubt it. I think once it's paid out, it's his. (Even if he didn't earn it)
Bergdahl is due approximately $200,000 in back pay for the time he was in Taliban hands. He would be eligible for another $150,000 if an ongoing probe determines he was a prisoner of war. Both sums could be tax free for Bergdahl, who was promoted from private first class to sergeant during the time he was held.

I remain convinced this guy was an intelligence asset. Perhaps another time I'll explain why.

How the HELL was he promoted to Sgt while in captivity? He has to go to PLDC and the promotion board!!
This is getting stranger and stranger every day
