The story isn't quite over yet.

His sentence has to be approved at the 4 star level before it goes final.

If the judge was found to have acted inappropriately then it will be changed. I don't remember if this goes to a new trial or not. It has been awhile since I've had anything to do with military law. That said, it is fairly rare for that to happen, but then again the whole situation is pretty uncommon. So who knows.

That said, it could be the judge found the way he did as a result of Berghdahl's experience during captivity. It could very well have been much worse than anyone is letting on. And those details will probably never be publically known.

Also, it has been suggested that Bergdahl provided a variety of important information during his debriefing and that may have contributed to a modification of his sentencing terms. And if true, those details will most certainly never be known.

The bottom line is that Bergdahl is now a dishonorably discharged vet and will be quickly forgotten to history.

Bergdahl has been providing "intelligence" on his whereabouts and it was stated to be valuable enough for him to be "free" in accordance with the veracity of information provided.

The dishonorable discharge is on appeal with the argument that the judge's decision was compromised by the president's remarks. I didn't even realize a dishonorable discharge could be appealed.

It can be appealed as the court-martial's decision and I understand it can also be appealed later through the VA in terms of how you're treated in civilian life, your "VA rating" I think it's called.

Bergdahl's unit had problems from the gitgo but this is no excuse for geting away with anything. He got caught, spent time in jail and provided information that is serving as a benchmark for future operations. The fellow has suffered enough.
