During the years 1959- 62, I was a member of the Professional Service Staff at the U.S. Air Force Retraining Group at Amarillo Air Force Base. We were rather successful at rehabilitation with a low recidivism rate under a program directed by Professor Howard Gill at American University in Washington, D.C. All of our Air Force staff attended a lengthy course taught by Professor Gill, who was a former warden at Lawton, Va. During my tenure, I don’t remember anyone from Texas state penal or corrections visiting our program to observe our methods. It is nice to see that there is now interest and participation on their part. Leo W. Goates Arcadia, Calif. Morton Article Thought-Provoking Thank you for dedicating an issue to such an interesting and important topic (Incarceration, Recidivism, and Rehabilitation, September 2012). I found Patricia Cummings’ story about Michael Morton and his insights about prison life especially interesting (p.608). I hope to see more substantive, thought-provoking articles like this in the Texas Bar Journal in the future. Julie Frey Austin
