Three former platoon mates of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl appeared on “The Kelly File” Thursday night and cringed at the thought that he would strike a plea deal and possibly receive an honorable discharge.

“I want it to go to a trial because I believe if he pleas we won’t ever get to hear what happened. It’s selfish of me, but I want to hear from him why he did what he did. […] It’s something we’ve lived with for so long,” Mr. Buetow said.
