Soldier from Bergdahl's company talks to FOX 5

Posted: Updated:
One of the soldiers in Bowe Bergdahl's company who was part of the massive 2009 search for him in Afghanistan is from the D.C. area.  FOX 5 chief investigative reporter Emily Miller talked to him on Wednesday.

He asked that his identity not be revealed because he's still in the military, and all of the soldiers who were part of the initial search were required to sign non-disclosure agreements when they got back.  

Miller showed him new video released by the Taliban shown Bergdahl's handover for the first time, and got his reaction.

"He didn't look gaunt," the soldier said.  "He was definitely pale.  It's interesting that they shaved his head and beard before handing him back over."  

Despite the fact that Bergdahl is back in U.S. custody, his fellow soldier said it's far from over.

"I think it's definitely far from over," he told Miller.  "It's going to be very interesting to see how this plays out-- if and when the (Department of Defense) decides to-- like I side-- have a very real and very transparent conversations about exactly what happened with him."

Tune in to FOX 5 on Thursday night to see Miller's full interview with the soldier, and a the photographs he took at Bergdahl's base on the day he disappeared.
