I have only been a correctional officer for about a year and a half. I really love it. I never thought I would. I never thought it would be something I would do, but there you have it. Oh sure, there are days when I would rather do something a bit more girly. Sometimes it is scary. But I never have to worry about what to wear.
It can be dangerous. These are convicted criminals. They have already proven themselves to be bad guys. Officers have been murdered. 24 in the history of the Bureau Of Prisons. Tomorrow we will have a memorial ceremony to honor all those which have given their lives carrying out our mission. Here I will honor them as well. You can click on their names to read more.
