Combat Veteran Succumbs to Wounds 10 Years After Search for Army Deserter
Bergdahl deserted his post in Afghanistan and was imprisoned by the Taliban for five years.
Allen's grievous injuries on the battlefield left him unable to walk or speak.
Fox News' David Aaro reports:
Bergdahl later pled guilty and was dishonorably discharged, reduced in rank from sergeant to private and fined $1,000 per month over a 10-month period for deserting his post and endangering the lives of fellow soldiers, including Allen.
When Bergdahl was traded for five Taliban prisoners and brought home, Shannon Allen, Mark's wife didn't hold back her feelings for how he changed their family forever.
"Meet my husband," she wrote on Facebook, "injuries directly brought to you by the actions of this traitor."
Donald Trump also expressed his disdain toward the prisoner transfer of Bergdahl, calling the decision "a complete" and "total disgrace to our country and our Military."
