Odie and Bash are brothers who ideally will be adopted out together. They both went through the Washington State Penitentiary training program. Odie graduated but Bash did not. I am guessing Bash is short for bashful as he's a bit shy.
Included in this post are scans from the journal kept by the inmate that worked with Bash. It is as touching as it is interesting.
Thank you to volunteers James and Alyssa for helping me take these photos.
