Compton is best known for his prosecution of Sirhan B. Sirhan for the 1968 slaying of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. But that only tells part of the story. Compton was one of the war heroes who inspired the HBO series "Band of Brothers" and earned a Silver Star and a Purple Heart for his service in World War II. But wait; there’s more. Compton also played college football and baseball alongside Jackie Robinson. His amateur sports career included an appearance in the 1943 Rose Bowl.
