I was given a Bar to Renelistment and an Article for the same offense- Isn’t this double punishment?

Can I have be given a bar to reenlistment and an Article 15 at the same time? My NCO told me I cannot receive 2 punishments for the same offense?

The Article 15 is punishment.  The Bar to Reenlistment is an administrative action and does not constitute punishment.
