LANDSTUHL, GERMANY (NBC) - US Army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl continued receiving treatment at an American military hospital in Germany Tuesday.

On Monday, officials at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center released a statement saying Bergdahl was "continuing his reintegration process."

The statement said the goal is to "return him to family and society and on the path to complete recovery."

Bergdahl was released by the Taliban on Saturday after spending five years in captivity.

His freedom came in part of a prisoner swap, which saw five Guantanamo detainees "transferred" to Qatar.

President Barack Obama and his administration has come under criticism for the move, saying it could further encourage hostage-taking and may have broken the law.
