Bowe Bergdahl’s return to active duty hasn’t pleased everybody. Andy Andrews, father of slain soldier 2nd Lt. Darryn Andrews, does not agree with Bergdahl returning.

“I find it unbelievable,” Andrews told the New York Post. “I don’t understand what’s wrong with these people. He’s a deserter from the U.S. Army, and he should be treated as such. He should be charged with desertion under the uniform code of military justice.”

2nd Lieutenant Andrews was killed in Afghanistan in 2009 when he was 34, and his father believes it was while searching for Berghdahl after he was accused of desertion.

“I think they [the Obama administration] are doing this to justify the release of the five Taliban [who were swapped for Bergdahl].”

Bergdahl returned to active duty with a desk job on Monday.
