S6 E5: Bonus Army Stamp

A collector in Hawaii has a stamp he believes is linked to the "Bonus Army". This group of WWI veterans demanded pay for their combat service, marching on Washington and camping out in protest in 1932. These veterans were eventually attacked by the military. Host Wes Cowan heads to Hyde Park, NY and Washington, DC to find out the role this political stamp played in the veterans' movement.
