Governor Otter is thankful that Bowe Bergdahl is back in the U.S.

MOSCOW, ID - An Army general will soon start questioning Bowe Bergdahl to try to figure out why the soldier left his base in Afghanistan.

The Idaho soldier returned to the United States on Friday, and he's currently being evaluated at an Army medical facility in San Antonio, Texas. Idaho Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter was in Moscow over the weekend, and we asked how he feels about Bergdahl's return.

"Number one, I'm thankful that he's home, back in the United States, and I understand, will soon be in the arms of his family," said Governor Otter. "That's important and we should all celebrate that. What happens after that is going to depend on the investigations?"

Bergdahl went missing in Afghanistan in June 2009, and an investigation determined he intentionally left his military outpost. A two-star Army general will start investigating how and why he left his base this week, but defense officials haven't announced exactly who will lead the questioning, or when it'll take place.
