Sam Martin 03


On February 20, 1943 Sam Martin was called before the board to state his case for CO status.  He gave them Scripture references, told them that he was a member of a peace church before the war started.  Judge Harvey asked him a few questions and after 20 minutes dismissed him and told him he would not receive CO status.
