Josh Korder, a soldier who served with Bowe Bergdahl, told CNN that "he's at best a deserter and at worst a traitor."

"Honestly, I think he just wanted to go on an adventure without having anybody to answer to, without having anything to worry about," Korder says in response to a question about why Bergdahl left the base. "He wanted to be able to go out and see Afghanistan for himself without the army stopping him or having to tell him what to do. I think he was just trying to, you know, go on an adventure."
