This week on Task & Purpose Radio, Lauren Katzenberg interviews former Army Spc. Cody Full, who was roommates with Bowe Bergdahl at Fort Richardson, Alaska. In Afghanistan, they were members of the same three-man fire team before Bergdahl disappeared. Full talks about what he thinks should happen to Bergdahl and why he walked off base.
Then, Lauren, Nate Bethea, and James Weirick discuss a new report released by the Government Accountability Office on hazing in the military.
Finally, Weirick reads some real messages that Task & Purpose has received to its Facebook page. If you’ve seen Jimmy Kimmel’s segment where he has celebrities read mean tweets written about themselves, you’ll get the idea.

LONDON/DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran's Revolutionary Guards said on Friday they had captured a British-flagged oil tanker in the Gulf after Britain seized an Iranian vessel earlier this month, further raising tensions along a vital international oil shipping route.
Britain said it was urgently seeking information about the Stena Impero after the tanker, which had been heading to a port in Saudi Arabia, suddenly changed course after passing through the Strait of Hormuz at the mouth of the Gulf.
