What would you say to an inmate?
I have been given the go-ahead by my editor, and have received my security clearance to interview a group of inmates at the California State Prison in Lancaster, California. But these are no ordinary inmates, each one is a veteran who, before serving time, served their country in the US military. While in prison, they orginized a veterans group and run fund-rasiers to get money to send to our troops still searving overseas.
Before I head up to interview and write my story, I will be donating a couple of the One-Eyed Jack novels to be put into the prison library. I have been asked to personalize them for the veterans before I ship them off. The question is, what do you say to a person who has served our country, but now, for whatever offense, is serving time?
