“Buck” Compton

If you have watched the series Band of Brothers you probably remember the character Buck Compton. Lynn D. “Buck” Compton was a part of the D-day invasion, Operation Market Garden (where he was wounded) and the Battle of the Bulge. What you may not know is that Lynn Compton went on to become a LAPD officer and lawyer. He was part of a three man team which successfully prosecuted Sirhan B. Sirhan who was accused of shooting Robert Kennedy. “Buck” died February of this year.
