Courtesy Eugene Fidell(WASHINGTON) — The two star general tasked with investigating Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s disappearance from an U.S. Army outpost in Afghanistan has completed his interviews with Bowe Bergdahl, the Department of Defense confirmed on Tuesday.

Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl “is in the process of completing his report” and expects to submit it for review next month, the DOD said in a statement.

While Dahl is wrapping up his report, the DOD said “it is possible that he will have to follow up on issues that may require additional witness interviews.”

Dahl’s report is meant to uncover the facts surrounding the circumstances of Bergdahl’s disappearance from an Afghan outpost and his capture by the Taliban in 2009 that will be presented to the director of the Army staff. If the report reveals findings that could require disciplinary action, it will be up to Bergdahl’s current command to follow through with those actions.

Bergdahl, 28, recently completed a lengthy reintegration process with the Army. He has been assigned a desk job at the headquarters of U.S. Army North at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.
