Manning will have 21 days of restrictions on recreation; the maximum penalty would have been indefinite solitary confinement.
'I do not believe I'll be able to survive another year or two ... without treatment,' says the trans military whistleblower, in the wake of the military's continued delays in providing transition-related medical care.
Manning's doctors have deemed her transition-related care medically necessary, but a new statement from the Wikileaks source says Defense Department promises are just lip service.
An Associated Press report cites anonymous Pentagon officials who claim that the WikiLeaks source has been cleared for transfer, and will receive hormone therapy.
The WikiLeaks source announced today that she is now legally recognized as 'Chelsea Elizabeth Manning.' Manning also provided an update on her current state of affairs, including whether or not she will receive health care.
Meanwhile, Fox News continues to refer to Chelsea as a man, using her given name, despite her August announcement that she's a transgender woman.
