Military hospital: Bergdahl appearance not planned

By The Associated Press

BERLIN - A U.S. military hospital in Germany where Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is receiving treatment says it currently has no plans for a press briefing or any interviews.

Bergdahl arrived on Sunday at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center following his release from nearly five years as a captive of the Taliban in Afghanistan. It remains unclear when he will continue to the United States but the facility in a statement Friday reiterated information released by the Pentagon that Bergdahl's health is improving daily.

Bergdahl has made no public appearance since his handover to the U.S. military on Saturday.
