Jerry Kenney

ReEntry Stories features conversations between people who were once in prison. Today we meet Angel Hopson Woods, a student at Sinclair Community College and an intern with the Sinclair Communications Department. Writing runs in their family – Reuben is a self-publishing author and Angel is a poet. She wanted to interview her father Reuben Woods who had a repeating pattern of incarceration until 11 years ago.

Children of military families represent a unique community in the United States. Often, these children are resilient, yet struggle because of the sacrifice they share when a parent serves in the armed forces. Today on Veterans’ Voices, Navy veteran Juan Ramirez and his daughters, Nicole Riesen and Sacha Ramirez. *Veterans’ Voices on WYSO is presented by Wright-Patt Credit Union with additional support from CareSource. This story was edited by Will Davis.
