I need information about how Vietnam conscientious objectors or draft resisters who went to prison were treated. Specifically, I am interested in how were they classified within the Bureau of Prisons, what if any special problems they encountered within the prison population, what their continuing contact with the peace movement was during incarceration, how they viewed the experience after it was finished. I am also interested in background information like descriptions of the facilities, food, work, visiting restrictions, phone and mail privileges. If you have personal experiences, can refer me to someone who does have personal experience, or can refer me to any books on the subject, I would be grateful. Please respond to me personally. Thank you.
