CoreCivic's Trousdale Turner Correctional Center (TTCC) in Hartsville, Tennessee held an AmVets Post charter ceremony for its veteran inmate pod on Tuesday, November 7. The special-assignment pod houses approximately 66 male offenders that served in a branch of the United States military and becomes the first AmVets post in the state of Tennessee with inmates as members (second in the country.)
AmVets Tennessee leadership, including Second Vice Commander Richard Holt, were on hand for the ceremony Tuesday and presented facility leadership and veterans pod attendees with their official charter, designating TTCC as AmVets Post 95.
