Thomasville -- A controversial U. S. detention facility that sparked protests worldwide will soon be home to a south Georgia soldier. Thomasville High and Valdosta State University graduate Jeanette Taylor leaves tomorrow for one year of hardship duty at the U. S. Prison Camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Specialist Jeanette Taylor spent time on her mother's front porch with her sister Natosha, and 10-year-old son Jason. The last several days have been busy , "Just packing, making sure I have all of the right stuff," she says.
A former corrections officer, she enlisted to help repay school loans and while she's dealt with the care, custody, and control of inmates before her new orders are different. "They are from other countries and terrorists, so they really have no regard for themselves or life as it is anyway, so it's a little bit different."
Recent suicides at the Guantanamo camp have made it the target of worldwide criticism, but Taylor hasn't paid attention to news coverage. "I know what's going on to a certain extent, but I don't want to get into too much detail before I go over there."
Her family will be watching and listening closely. "They're kind of nervous and they keep telling me to be careful and to do a good job and be safe and take care of myself and come home safe."
She doesn't know where she'll be assigned or her exact duties. "I'm going to go in open minded and positive and I'm going to go in and do my job to the best of my abilities and be careful and safe as a I possibly can."
As the last bags are packed and the final good byes said, she'll join others from her class guarding Guantanamo's 460 detainees for the next year.
When Taylor arrives AT Guantanamo Bay, she'll be surrounded by some familiar faces. Twenty-seven soldiers from her basic training class are already serving there.
