Military Prison Pen-pals

Many people don’t realize that a good number of military veterans end up in prison; however, we see Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, National Guard, and Navy veterans incarcerated in the U.S. prison system. If you’re interested in corresponding with an inmate who served in the military, please select a prison pen-pal from the list below.


Daniel Gregory is looking for pen-pals. He was given a long sentence as a first-time offender due to vague wording which was meant for career offenders. This law has been struck down as unconstitutional. He would be out today if it was retroactive, which is what he is waiting and praying for with faith.

He is athletic and loves sports. The Marine Corp was a dream since youth....

I am a Marine Corp Veteran, who served in Afghanistan. I was injured (nothing too serious, I have all my digits lol). I get out August 16, 2021, and I am looking for a kind person who can make the transition a little easier. No expectations, just a friend who is willing to understand the hardship of not only surviving war but prison as well.

I am excited to come back to society as a...

I am the named party in Ring vs. Arizona 536 U.S. 584 (2002) which obstructed the government’s executions of Americans for years. Since then, the courts have retaliated by ignoring, excusing and precluding every example of irrefutable evidence of police, prosecutor and court corruption, to include perjury, evidence tampering, witness tampering, withholding evidence of my actual innocence and...

In the spring of 2004, I had been “born again” to my new life with Christ Jesus twelve years. One evening as I was in prayer, our Lord gave answer to my prayer.

His answer to me was, I’m never getting out of the earthly prison, so shut up about it. Moreover, the guilt I harbored from the Vietnam War, my experience with a “one percent” outlaw motorcycle club and prison racist group,...

Hi, I’m Larry. Because time isn’t my friend, allow me to be direct. I need friends who’ll help me fight for freedom.
