Bergdahl had reportedly grown disillusioned with the U.S. mission in Afghanistan. He sent his laptop and other personal items home to his parents, leaving his post with just a compass, knife, water, camera and a diary, members of his platoon report. Bergdahl also left behind a note saying he wanted to start over.
