April 23, 2012 "I was working as a legal stenographer with the LA District Attorneys office during the Shirhan Shirhan trial. Mr Compton was a well respected DA. I did not know about his service in WWII until recently. I would have liked to hear of his experiences. My father fought in the Battle of the Bulge and also received a Purple Heart. God bless the Compton family. Your father was a great man." - Rebecca Negrete Saenz (Wilmington, CA)
