A military panel took 40 minutes to return a guilty verdict against Private Kamila Iwanowska.

An Army reservist was kicked out of the service last week for refusing to take the anthrax vaccine.

A military panel took 40 minutes to return a guilty verdict against Private Kamila Iwanowska and two hours to determine her penalty.

Iwanoska was charged with a bad conduct discharge, which is just one level behind dishonorable discharge. The prosecutor had asked the panel to give Iwanowska six months in jail.

Iwanoska is a Polish immigrant who became an American citizen last year.
