We are from wisconsin, our son was first put in Louisiana, then transferred to West Virginia, and was supposed to be transferred back to Wisconsin this month. We have quite a few prisons anywhere from an hour to two hours drive from us. Just found out today they are not sending him to Wisconsin, they are sending him to Milan in Michigan. So that is 570 miles from us..we haven't seen him in four years. We will make the trip to Milan when he gets transferred but due to health and money it wont be often, maybe twice a year. I dont understand why they do this to families, when there are so many prisons so close. I personally feel they do their best to make it harder on everyone by transferring them as far away as possible.

My fiance is currently located 421 miles away from me...there is a prison at least 45 minutes from me and there may be one even closer...I drove 8 hours to come visit him and I am staying for his 8 monthly visits...I'm a little disappointed that this prison doesn't even take photos unless it's a special holiday and you have to make special arrangements for it ahead of time...I want a picture with my man so bad...I hear most other prisons do it too...I figure if I'm gonna drive 8 hours I should at least get that!
