Inside Unit 32: Military veterans are part of new approach to incarceration at Colorado prison
STERLING, Colo. -- They served their country. Now, they're serving time. Some 1,400 military veterans call Colorado prisons home. But at the state's largest prison, they're trying a new approach to get veteran inmates back on track. They call it Unit 32. It's the veterans unit. About 100 former service members have moved into Unit 32, a blue building on the edge of the minimum-security yard at Sterling Correctional Facility. Their home has the feel of a military barracks, with tidy rooms, American flags and military insignias adorning the walls.
