etnam War-era veterans were
the most common wartime veterans in both State (36%) and
Federal (39%) prison. Veterans of the Iraq-Afghanistan eras

The average length of
military service of veterans in prison
was about 4 years. An estimated 62% of veterans received
an honorable discharge and 38% received various types of
other discharges." (Bureau of Justice, 2004)
Sounds like Vietnam veterans were 36-39% of the veterans in prison, not 36-39% of the total prison population. Not surprising considering the huge number of draftees forced into slavery in LBJ's war.
