A metro Atlanta woman took the stand today at the court-martial sentencing hearing of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl.
In tears, Shannon Allen described how her husband was grievously wounded while was searching for Bergdahl, after Bergdahl walked off of his post eight years ago.
Bergdahl also took the stand to apologize.
She spoke of how they were married in 2006, and she showed photographs of him. She said he had been an outgoing, happy, vibrant man, and active in their children's lives.
But after he had been shot in the head during the search for Bergdahl, he has had more than a dozen surgeries. Doctors have had to remove part of his brain. He remains paralyzed and cannot speak.
"We can't even hold hands anymore unless I pry open his hand and place mine in there," Sharon Allen said. "He's lost me as a wife. Essentially, instead of being his wife, I'm his caregiver."
She spoke for about 30 minutes. And as she left the courtroom, she walked past Bergdahl, looking straight ahead, not at him.
Bergdahl's attorneys had tried to exclude Shannon Allen's testimony as being prejudical -- but the judge allowed and will take what she said into account when he decides Bergdahl's sentence.
Bergdahl himself, testifying Monday afternoon, apologized, saying, "My words can't take away what the people have been through."

LEIGH MUNSIL of Politico wrote:The Defense Department does not expect to declassify a secret new report detailing the damage Edward Snowden’s leaks did to the military services, although two members of Congress say DoD concludes Snowden put U.S. troops in danger.
The former Booz Allen Hamilton analyst working the National Security Agency took 1.7 million intelligence files, according to the report, many of which detail current military operations in addition to the NSA surveillance that has gotten most of the attention since last spring.
The documents Snowden took “concern vital operations of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force,” said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), which could “gravely impact” U.S. national security.

The report, sent to Congress on Monday, centers on an initial assessment of the leaked documents by the Information Review Task Force, organized by Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. The DIA is leading the task force and working with intelligence community, the military services and military combatant commands.
“The goal of this task force is to assess the potential impact to the Department of Defense from the compromise of the information,” said a DIA official who asked not to be identified. “The IRTF continues its work as additional information is being reviewed. So this is an initial assessment, and the task force work continues.”
It’s unlikely the task force’s initial findings, at least, will be released publicly. “The report is classified, and we don’t expect it to be declassified,” the official said.
