BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A spokesman for the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl says they are overjoyed their son has returned to the United States.

Col. Tim Marsano said in a statement emailed Friday that Bob and Jani Bergdahl of Hailey, Idaho, don’t plan to make any travel plans public and are asking for privacy as they concentrate on their son’s reintegration.

Bowe Bergdahl had been recovering in Germany after five years as a Taliban captive in Afghanistan.

He returned to the United States early Friday to continue his medical treatment at Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.
