Honorable Discharge Vietnam Veteran Charged With Murder

This post is written by a Graterford State Maximum Security Prison inmate (located in Graterford, PA) who has been incarcerated since 1968 and is serving a life sentence. I came to know this man, Maurice Talley, when I, Maria Maneos, was applying for an artist installation at Eastern State Penitentiary. The installation was to be in recognition of those men who are still alive and had actually served time at this once most dehumanizing and disciplined penitentiary the world had ever known. Maurice Talley was one of those inmates.

He is a Vietnam Veteran and trying to find legal counsel as well as have his case re-opened for trial.

Below are his words:

  1. I had a chance to get to know Maurice. He currently works with veterans with p.t.s.d in graterford prison. One of the most inspiration person I ever met in my life. It blows my mind that he remains so positive and dedicates so much time in energy in to helping others, yet he is sentenced to life. I know several accounts where this man put his own life in danger, (one in a fire) to save others. You would have too meet this man for yourself to understand the depth of this man’s heart. Just a amazing person.
    He saved me while I was in from myself. Thru teaching positive physiology and working on my p.t.s.d. Now I am shop much better then before I went in. I couldn’t function, now I do. For that and everything else this man did, I am truly grateful
