    It wasn't pardoned....it had it's sentence commuted.

    - There is a difference - the guilty plea stands.

    Pardon: means completely absolving the person of the crime and letting him go free. The pardoned criminal will be like a normal citizen. Commutation: means changing the type of punishment given to the guilty into a less harsh one, for example, a death penalty commuted to a life sentence.

    Not at all and that was probably the whole point.  Who would want to rejoin the Army after you finally managed to escape their evil clutches?

    No. First off, given she disclosed classified information, few jobs would be open to her.

    Second, she got a dishonorable discharge, so she's still verboten.

    No, transgender Americans cannot join the US military.

    Pardoned doesn't clear the dishonorable discharge.
