A prison in Connecticut has a new wing dedicated to housing inmates who are also veterans. State officials held a dedication ceremony on Nov. 9, and said the wing will prepare them to re-enter society. It’s also designed to remind prisoners of their time in the military.
110 men live in this wing of the Willard-Cybulski Correctional Institution in Enfield. They sleep in rows of bunk beds, and they wear identical tan jumpsuits. They’re all veterans from different branches of the military.
