Yeah, I got a few letters. It looks like it takes about 2 wks for me to get his letters. I pray he got some of my letters by now. I sent him some pics and some books too. N thanks for the update! I can't wait to hear my honey's voice again.
I'm so sorry it's taken so long for you to get your mail. I just keep my self busy and not dwell on it to much. I wanna send my honey good vibes you know. We got to be strong for them like they are strong for us.

Itís crazy but my friend said it could have possibly been due to the storms up that way that it took so long to get to me. I am the same way I canít wait to hear my loveís voice again. Yes positive vibes to our men so they can feel our positivity with this distance. I write mine at least two letters a week and send them to him. I usually send one on Monday and one on Tuesday or Wednesday. I know the Monday one typically gets there by Friday and the Tuesday one as well. I try to keep busy but this week is spring break for my school so Iím trying to focus on other things but I keep going back to thoughts of him.

I think about my honey all day, everyday. I just try not to worry about how he's doing when their on LD. I'm use to talking to him and telling him how much I love him. But I must exercise patience now.
These LD's make the time we do get, so much more precious and meaningful.
Enjoy ya break sweetie!
N I didn't even think about all the storms we've had. That's a good point.

I think about mine consistently too and worry when these lockdowns start that heís ok and then I get my letter and I calm down mildly but getting that one from 3/1-3/3 (when he wrote them) saying it was going to be until sometime in April I was like oh no. Yes LDís make the time we do get more meaningful and precious.

Lockdowns are very common and it's not just for fighting it's for attempted murders and gang beatings. I dont think the officers have any control over that place and the best solution they see is to just lock em all up all day everyday. Maybe ppl will get the point that actions have consequences but I doubt it.

This is a copy of the letter I mailed out along with the article and have had no response at this time, but I am hopeful we are being heard for our LO's sake.

Angela P Dunbar
Mid-Atlantic Regional Director Office
302 Sentinel Drive, Suite 200
Annapolis Junction, MD 20701
Dear Angela P Dunbar Mid-Atlantic Regional Director Office :
I am writing expressing my concern for the frequent and the extended length of times that USP Lee Federal Prison in Jonesville, VA inmates are going on lockdown. I understand the need for security and issues that arise within facilities such as this. I have family/friends on both sides as inmates and correction officers. But in discussion with them I was advised to write and make you aware of the continual issues that have occurred at this location.

It just seems to create more discontent among the inmates themselves and with the staff. They also seem to be withholding mail during the time lock downs occur in the facility. We either receive multiple letters at one time with different dates or none at all. I.E. I received two letters dated March 4 and March 5 but date stamped by the post office on March 12. In one of the letters he is responding to a letter I sent on February 28th in the other he is asking if I no longer care about him? This is a terrible head game and leads to depression and suicidal thoughts and can lead to the separation of families when the correctional facility advocates for unity and continual contact with loved ones. I have sent books through Ebay/Amazon that have not been delivered. This was covered in my letter to you back in December 2017.
I am also including an article and judgement regarding the adverse effects lock downs have on inmates. I eagerly await a response from you.

Thanks that is my hope. if we do nothing, nothing will change and they will continue to go on as they please but if one letter of complaint/concern makes a difference then it was well worth it for all our sakes! I have also talked to a lawyer about our mail issue previously and that seemed to get better once he contacted USP Lee but with this lockdown seems like back were we started.

Lol not by much but it was something he said he would handle and it worked for awhile. Federal laws regarding mail can be extreme in the tampering part of it and that was the angle we took.

Called up there today and was told they have no estimated date for when the lockdown will be over... And was then hung up on of course.
