BergdahlSgt. Bowe Bergdahl has left Germany and is expected to arrive in the United States sometime early Friday, Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said Thursday.

Bergdahl has been treated at the military hospital at Landstuhl Germany, after he was released by his Taliban captors in Afghanistan after five years as a captive.

"He will arrive in San Antonio early tomorrow morning, where he will continue the reintegration process at Brooke Army Medical Center," Kirby said in a statement. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel "has made clear, our first priority is making sure that Sgt. Bergdahl continues to get the care and support he needs."

The swap of five Taliban leaders detained at Guantanamo Bay for Bergdahl, who went missing from his post in Afghanistan in 2009, has prompted outrage on Capitol Hill. Members of both parties have criticized the Obama administration for failing to notify them of the trade, and Republicans have blasted the White House for giving up too much.
