AUDIO SLIDESHOW. 3:22 min, stereo sound. In the only advocacy program of its kind in the country, inmates Ed Munis and “Doc” Piper at the Correctional Training Facility in Soledad, California run a successful veterans service office, which helps ensure that incarcerated vets receive the benefits to which they are entitled. Navigating a labyrinth of rules and regulations, the pair has brought in millions of dollars for imprisoned vets and their families through careful research and hard work.
