Stewart was a the DC Gulag for a while before being transferred to a Federal Correctional Institution. He wrote to Deana to give an update since moving there.

Letting you know I am back in the BOP system, so you can reach me here again.  I am at FCI Cumberland, MD.  They moved me here this past Monday.  This is a good facility.  Medium security, and safe.  Both staff and inmates say it is one of the best places on the East half of the US.  So this is good to go for now, until I can get transferred closer to family in CA.  But I am doing fine.  The food here is good, on a par with Lewisburg, and I am now in general population, with men who are about to get out, so they are on their best behavior, and no drama.  So far, zero issues with anyone here, which is what I have fortunately experienced wherever I have been, but nice to see that pattern continue.

There is a solid group of Christian conservatives here, and we pray together every night, and my cell mate and I read the bible together.  Good fellowship.  And now I will be able to attend Sunday church service for the first time.  Looking forward to that.

This place is a vast improvement over the DC Jail!  That’s a fact.

Thank you, again, for all your support.  I really do appreciate it.  And please give my regards to the other people in the J-6 support community, and let them know I am doing fine.

God bless,


Stewart Rhodes
