This is coolbert:

“'The most absurd charges are used to send sailors to the brig and put them on bread and water,' . . .'The poor treatment of this command’s sailors has led to more than one sailor changing their career plans and choosing to leave the Navy rather than stay in and deal with any more of this garbage.'”

I had wondered if this form of punishment was still given to an American sailor guilty of some offense punishable under UCMJ [Uniform Code of Military Justice].

Charges of wrong doing miscreant receiving as a punitive measure being restricted to a bread and water ration.

"No more bread-and-water punishment for US Navy sailors"

"Two weeks after he took over as commander of the USS Shiloh in June 2015, US Navy captain Adam M. Aycock punished a sailor for breaking curfew with an arcane sentence: three days in the brig while subsisting on nothing but bread and water."

"Aycock would go on to use that punishment so frequently that his ship was nicknamed the USS Bread and Water. Sailors feared Aycock’s wrath, which could be incurred by the slightest of infractions, according to a ship survey taken during Aycock’s tenure and later cited by the Navy Times."
