The U.S. army announced Monday that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will face a military court on charges of desertion and endangering fellow soldiers.

A court-martial has been ordered, which is in direct opposition to the original recommendation from Bergdahl's preliminary hearing who recommended that Bergdahl be referred to a special court-martial and not face jail time.
