'They're still heroes'

VIDEO: Maury Correctional in Hookerton, N.C., is the only prison in North Carolina with an all-veterans' pod. In a half-year since their unit came together, the inmates in the pod have served without any major infractions. “They’re still inmates,” said Kenneth Lassiter, deputy director of operations for the state Department of Public Safety. “They’re still incarcerated. They’re still heroes, though.”
