Bergdahl’s former platoon members also hit back against critics who have actually attacked them for speaking out. Kelly was clearly outraged that Obama administration officials would attack military heroes.
“When you’re in a combat zone, it doesn’t matter if you are left, right, independent, Jedi, whatever you want to be, OK? The only thing that matters is you have an American flag on your shoulder, and he’s my brother, he’s my brother, he’s my brother — we’re all going to ride together, we’re all going to die together,” Full said. “I don’t know how he felt about us, but we would all die for him — and he left.”
Buetow said he and other veterans need “closure” and to know why Bergdahl left the Army base. The men also want people to know that he is no “hero.”
It was at this point that all six men raised their hands when asked if Bergdahl should be court-martialed.
