additional clothes from commissary. The LCJ
uniform is a jumpsuit of orange to red in color.
they range form small to xxxl however a small is
not always a small depends on how they were cut.

black and white. and you were given a pair of
slides for shoes a hard plastic thing Timothy: For the tents we had a different uniform than the stockade, The
stockade had orange jumpsuits, the tents had a blue uniform with
separate pants and shirt instead of a one piece like a jumpsuit. Also
