The Curry Barracks
army prison was not a nice place. It was a place of punishment.
He was told by the commanding officer that there had never been
a person he could not break. Sam was told he would have
to go naked or put on a military uniform. Sam went naked.
He was given a sentence of 3 days bread and water. The
guards turned off the heat to his cell, and opened his window
to try to force him to put on the military clothes. After
a number of attempts they gave up.
