If the VA medical scandal isn’t enough to cause military veterans to become angry, there is another issue looming that will increase their displeasure. It has to do with Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s back pay while being held by the Taliban.

The Army issued a statement Friday that said after Bergdahl’s reintegration it would continue a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances of his disappearance and captivity. The results of the investigation will determine if Bergdahl will receive more than $300,000 in back pay. If it is determined he was a prisoner of war, he could receive another $300,000 or more if approved by the Army.
