Subject: Survive Prison

I’m about to do a year or two in prison, I’m a woman and x marine I am not looking forward to the girls wanting to flex on me! How should I handle myself so I’m not too friendly and not too hard ass!????

This depends on where you are doing your time. 1-2 years in women's federal, you are probably in lower custody facilities. My best advice is to remain quiet, don't talk about your charge or your co-defendants and always look them in the eye when talking. No one wants to stay any longer than they have to so, most if not all are not looking to catch another charge and adding to the sentence. BUT, If there is anything of a physical threat, you have to stick up for yourself.

Do the inmates have to be registered for inmate aid or pay a fee and how do they know that they are receiving inmate aid will they notify them when they get a postcard

Inmates do not register on InmateAid. InmateAid is a "service for you to aid them"... All of our mail is processed by a fulfillment house that prints and mails the details of your order to the inmate you select. Your Account Dashboard keeps track of all the correspondence, calling minutes, magazine orders, everything you can think of that might make your inmate's day a little better. You can set up a Holiday Package that reminds you to say "hi" during the loneliest times for an inmate. You can send selfies in seconds on a postcard or a 4" x 6" high gloss photo printed to the edge. You send them magazines, books, continuing education literature... reading is a great escape for inmates, no pun intended :)
