Can I request confinement versus extra duty when receiving an Article 15?

I am in the midst of receiving an article 15, can I request confinement versus extra duty?

Company Command: The Bottom Line - Army Leadership Guide

The Soldier can request correctional custody (7 days max for Company Grade or 30 days max for a Field Grade Art 15).  Correctional custody may only be given to E3 and below.  A SPC or CPL who was given an unsuspended reduction to E3 or below may also be given correctional custody.  However, the location where the Article 15 is given must have a correctional facility.  Most bases no longer have a correctional facility.  The holding cell at the MP station does not qualify.  It has to be a correctional facility such as the Northwest Regional Correctional Facility at JBLM, Fort Leavenworth, etc.
