Scuttlebutt 27: Marines in the Brig with CW04 Denise Barnes, USMC (Ret)

Recently retired Chief Warrant Officer 4 Denise Barnes joined Nick, Vic, and William in studio to educate us on an MOS we know so little about: Corrections. The trailblazing Barnes, along with one other, was one of the first women to achieve CW04 within the MOS, and we were lucky to have her because she has seen it all, from the high profile PFC Manning to Iraq to the day-to-day of the brig. We also got to learn a little bit about Trinidad, where Barnes was born and raised, and how growing up in a friendly, tight-knit community made joining the Marines a natural fit.
