SAN ANTONIO, TX (CNN) - Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, exchanged on May 31 for five Taliban figures held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has arrived in San Antonio, a military official says.

Bergdahl had been in a military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, since he was released in Afghanistan after five years of Taliban captivity. He is expected to be taken to a military hospital in Texas for continued rehabilitation.

The swap sparked a controversy that touches on a range of volatile issues including ending the Afghanistan war, releasing Guantanamo detainees and accusations by members of Bergdahl's unit that he deserted.
