Thank you for the wonderful article about Roger C. (Bill) Terry (Oct. 20). We are glad that the charges and conviction against him as a young airman for entering a "whites only" officers club have at last been overturned. The court-martial should never have been there in the first place. This is just another reminder of the callous and brutal discrimination meted out to minorities in the armed forces at that time and, to a degree, in subsequent years. Bill Terry attended Willowbrook Junior High School and Compton High School in the same class as my older sister.
