A military judge is deciding how severe a sentence to give U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. Bergdahl pleaded guilty last week to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. 

In 2009, he walked off his post in Afghanistan. Service members searched intensely for him for more than a month. Some of them testified in a Fort Bragg courtroom this week about the conditions and attacks they endured, while looking for Bergdahl.

Freelance journalist Greg Lacour is covering the sentencing hearing in Fort Bragg for a global news service.
