Manning Arrives At Fort Leavenworth Prison

KSAL StaffAugust 22, 2013

Officials at Fort Leavenworth say Bradley Manning has arrived at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks to begin serving a 35-year prison term.

A brief statement from the northeast Kansas post Thursday afternoon gave no other details about Manning’s arrival or status. He previously spent nearly two years at an adjacent prison while awaiting court-martial.

The soldier was sentenced Wednesday for sending classified government material to WikiLeaks.

Manning announced Thursday he intends to live as a woman and go by the name Chelsea Manning. He said he would ask the Army to let him begin hormone therapy as soon as possible.

Army spokesman George Marcec says Manning will have access to mental health professionals but the prison system doesn’t provide hormone therapy or gender reassignment surgery for inmates.
