In a written statement provided to NBC’s “Today” show on Thursday morning, Manning said he planned to live as a woman named Chelsea.

A military judge announced the sentence in Manning’s court-martial on Wednesday. Manning’s struggle with gender identity disorder — his sense that he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — was a key part of the defense.

Attorneys had presented evidence of Manning’s struggle with gender identity, including a photo of the soldier in a blond wig and lipstick sent to a therapist.
