From the Wall Street Journal:
Sgt. Bergdahl has refused to see his parents or speak to them on the phone, [an Army] official said. The decision by Sgt. Bergdahl, who returned to regular duty on Monday, suggests a deeper estrangement between the soldier and his parents than the military understood when he was released. Still, officials said, they don’t know the precise cause of the tension or when it began.
Bergdahl finished his formal counseling treatment at an Army hospital and began a new job Monday at U.S. Army North at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston in Texas.
Sgt. Bergdahl’s father, Robert Bergdahl, was an outspoken — if sometimes disturbing — advocate for his son throughout his five years of captivity.
