Samuel Snow thought when he got a check from the Pentagon that the Army was finally ready to give him the apology and the compensation he'd been denied for 63 years. He was wrong.

The Army imprisoned Snow in 1944 for a crime he says he couldn't have committed. The military overturned his conviction this year and sent him his back pay for the 15 months he spent in prison: $725.

Snow is one of just two defendants still alive from one of the biggest military trials of World War II.

I saw this in another forum earlier today, and was absolutely disgusted. The Army ruined this man's life (ever try getting a decent job after receiving a BCD?) based on racist and trumped-up charges, and some penny-ante bureaucrat thinks that a $725 check is gonna make it all better? Find then hang the little anonymous twerp who approved this, then at least try to give Samuel Snow back his remaining life.
