Bergdahl's unit comrades recount his disappearance

Some believe soldiers died looking for him, and he should stand tria

(Continued)

WASHINGTON, D.C. —

He said Bergdahl's fellow soldiers knew within five or 10 minutes from the discovery of disappearance that he had walked away. In retrospect the signs were there, he said, but there was nothing so definitive that would have prompted action.

"He said some strange things, like, 'I could get lost in those mountains,' which, at the time, that doesn't really strike you as someone who is going to leave their weapon and walk out."

Vierkant said he believes it's paramount that an investigation determine whether Bergdahl deserted or collaborated with the enemy.

"It shouldn't even be a question of whether, it should question of when," he said.
