BergdahlSgt. Bowe Bergdahl, released in May after five years as a Taliban prisoner of war in Afghanistan, will return to active duty Monday, The New York Times reported. According to the newspaper, the move is intended to further aid the former captive's return to life in the U.S. after his captivity.

Bergdahl’s return from Afghanistan was fraught with controversy, as fellow soldiers accused him of desertion, saying the initial search for the sergeant led to the deaths of U.S. troops. An Army investigation into the circumstances of Bergdahl’s ordeal continues.

Defense Department officials told the Times that Bergdahl had completed a round of therapy and that he will take a job assignment at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. He is also slated to meet soon with the investigator of his disappearance, Maj. Gen. Kenneth R. Dahl.

Bergdahl’s release came as part of a prisoner swap with five Taliban leaders held by the U.S. at Guantanamo Bay and released in exchange for the sergeant. The Taliban members are now living in Qatar, the Gulf emirate that helped broker the deal.
