Bergdahl offers apology

Bergdahl offers apology

[Ed. –  – oh, forget it.]

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl unexpectedly took the stand at his sentencing hearing Monday — and choked up several times as he apologized to service members who were wounded in the years-long hunt to save him.

“I would like everyone who searched for me to know it was never my intention for anyone to be hurt, and I never expected that to happen,” he said during the hearing at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. “My words alone can’t take away their pain.”

He was the first witness for the defense, who hadn’t previously made it known that Bergdahl would address the court. It was his most extensive remarks in court yet.
