I’ve never followed blogs. Consequently, it’s difficult to articulate any reason why I would write one. I suppose my motivation stems from a profound frustration. Perhaps you can take a moment to imagine yourself in my shoes…
I rose from poverty through hard work and determination to become a decorated veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan. I received a Bronze Star Medal (BSM) after leading 115 young Americans through the perils of said wars. Nine months after returning from war, I found myself locked in a 6″ x 9″ cell made of 313 cinderblocks and a three-inch thick steel door, deposited there by a whirlwind of surreal events that I’m still not quite sure happened…except they did, because here I am.
With this blog, I hope to provide a perspective of prison life in America’s largest military prison. I hope you enjoy the read.
I know writing a blog will not increase my chances for an early release – if anything, it may be a hindrance. Regardless, I’m allowing myself to imagine an army of followers flocking to Captain Incarcerated, organizing themselves, and campaigning for my freedom. I’m not expecting anything, but if readers are compelled to do so, I will not object.
