And let me guess, Private Manning will get better health care benefits than any other veteran, retiree, and their families under Tricare!
Any wagers that benefits for him will include all kinds of treatment for his sexual-disorientation condition? And he’ll probably get to do it in a private facility right near his home…and not have to drive 50 miles to receive treatment, as many of us retirees must do in order to keep the medical retirement plan we wanted to keep upon retirement! Sound familiar?
Pvt. Chelsea Manning, the U.S. solider convicted of espionage for leaking national security secrets, will remain an active duty solider after her release from a military prison, according to multiple reports.
Manning, a transgender soldier whose sentence was commuted by President Obama, will not be paid after her May 17 release from Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, but will be eligible for healthcare benefits, the Army told USA Today.
Manning changed her name and received hormone treatment while in prison.
She will remain an Army private while her court-martial conviction is under appeal, Dave Foster, an Army spokesman, told the paper.
“Pvt. Manning is statutorily entitled to medical care while on excess leave in an active duty status, pending final appellate review,”
