OK, count me as flummoxed. How does attempting suicide ( clearly in despair ) counts as 'conduct threatening', deserving of some solitary confinement and the possibility of years added to her sentence? WTH?

It seems to me that the military justice system has a vendetta against her.

Start with the phrase "military intelligence" and work forward.

Hell, I got 14 days at Captain's Mast because I got my feet sunburned.

Seriously. Charge was "Rendering Government property unusable and risking destruction of same." (YCMTSU)

Haven't gone barefoot on the beach since.

Soldiers take an oath to obey all lawful orders and tho' it's not stated it means unto death. When you are released from a stockade they can make you serve out the remainder of your hitch even if you are old and gray. The military is no place to jack around.
The Army had a small head-case enlistee so they gave him a soft-touch job and he screwed it up.
