hospital in Germany since his release
The US soldier held by the Taliban has arrived at a Texas military base after flying in from Germany.
Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, 28, is being taken to a military medical centre for the next part of what the military calls a "reintegration mission".
Officials previously said he would be reunited with his family there.
Sgt Bergdahl was freed on 31 May in exchange for five Taliban commanders held at Guantanamo bay, a deal criticised by the Republicans.
The US soldier left Ramstein Air Base earlier on Thursday aboard a US military aircraft and arrived in San Antonio early on Friday morning.
"Our first priority is making sure that Sgt Bergdahl continues to get the care and support he needs," Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm John Kirby said in an earlier statement.
