The former roommate of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, testified Wednesday that the recently freed soldier needed to be charged with desertion and a host of other offenses.

Ret. Spc. Cody Full said “Combat is difficult. The only thing you can count on in combat is commitment of your fellow American. Knowing that someone you needed to trust deserted you in war and did so of his own free will is the ultimate betrayal.”

This powerful statement was made yesterday to a Congressional committee.
