Bradley Manning/ Chelsea E. Manning soldier to woman

Bradley Manning sentenced to 35 years in prison for sending classified material to WikiLeaks. Bradley Manning wants to become Chelsea E. Manning. He/she plans to live as a woman and wants to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible.

Interesting because Bradley Manning is a United States soldier going to a military prison. Any health care cost are paid in full by tax payers dollars. The military prison at Fort Leavenworth, KS, proper name, The United States Disciplinary Barracks, is the U.S. military's only maximum-security facility and houses male service members convicted at court-martial for violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.  Important to note the
Prison cell
prison is for males enlisted prisoners with sentences over ten years. Does Manning plan on being isolated from the general population for 35 years?

Bradley Manning says he wants to live as a woman

Who should get the bill?
