    The reason Bergdahl got promoted is because official Army policy specifically states that upon their return, POWs automatically get promoted to whatever their rank would have been according to their time in grade had they not been captured.

    I'm not taking any stance on the Bergdahl case, as the whole thing just seems like a huge mess, but people should be aware that Bergdahl's promotion was a standard procedure, and not some special honor.

      You are wrong.

      There is no automatic promotion for time served, EXCEPT for those that are confirmed POW's.

      Every one else has to pass the tests, and get the recommendations.

      Proof of this is that Bergdahl has NOT been given his next scheduled promotion, while his actual past 5 years are being investigated.

    Obama will take every opportunity to denigrate honorable military service. Its all part of his larger plan to punish Americans for their accomplishments. Thanks for your service.

    Thank You for Your Service NealS. I totally agree and feel horrible for those serving in the military right now. This is just a disgrace and makes no sense unless you hate this country and freedom itself.
