Military Times Quick Poll: Do you support the early release of Pvt. Chelsea Manning?

President Obama's decision to commute the sentence of Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning has garnered strong opposition from some and glowing praise from others.

Congressional Republicans, as well as Defense Secretary Ash Carter, expressed opposition to the early-release. In an interview on CNN, Carter said: "All I'll say about the Manning case is I did not support the direction the president went but he's made his decision." Obama defended the controversial reduction of Manning's sentence, saying that his initial sentence was "very disproportionate" compared to those of other leakers. "I feel very comfortable that justice has been served and that a message has still been sent," Obama said.

Military Times wants to know where service members stand on this issue.
