Private Chelsea Manning will remain on active duty in the military, to include receiving health care benefits, after being released from prison on Wednesday, the Army told USA Today.

Private Manning will not receive active duty pay, but will have access to full military health care and other benefits afforded to active duty soldiers.

“Pvt. Manning is statutorily entitled to medical care while on excess leave in an active duty status, pending final appellate review,” said Dave Foster, an Army spokesman. Manning has appealed her court-martial conviction, and during that appeals process must remain a member of the armed forces.

Private Manning gained international notoriety first as a whistle-blower in 2010 after leaking thousands of classified secrets to Julian Assange’s “Wikileaks” an organization which was recently described by CIA Director Mike Pompeo as a “hostile foreign intelligence service.”
