Reading through this Morning Buzz, I stopped short on the story about Mr. Samuel Snow. I see "unfair trial," "imprisonment," and "pays," and was appalled to see the Army only giving Snow the amount he would have received decades ago. I would assume the Army would like to honor one of their veterans, but no, they have chosen to be blatently unapologetic towards this 83-year-old man.
Snow should get his compensation, of course, but in order for it to mean anything, it should be adjusted for the drastic inflation over the past 70 years!

Hi Jamie,
Morning Buzz? Your post says 5:35am, that's 2:35am here out West..I guess buzz never reads a clock! This night owl doesn't do mornings that well. I notice one thing missing from the buzz list is stories of our troops. Especially at this time of year our troops and their families should be on our radar each and everyday.
We owe them so much and must treat them as the fellow Americans that they are. Take Care
