He was buried in a row of a military cemetery in France. In a grave marked only with a number. His wife spent the remainder of her life trying to get a pardon for her husband and petitioning the VA for Slovik's pension.

A good setup with a lousy payoff
27 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are many AHP episodes that have twists and turns which are plausible and engaging.

This one has an interesting setup, about a rich man trying to pay back an Army buddy who covered for his act of cowardice. The buddy isn't interested, and is contented with his $110/week job and pretty young wife.

Later in the episode, when we find out what the rich man's source of income is, it's a bit of a disconnect. Then, in the final scene, which (judging by the clownish music) is supposed to be a funny payoff, we're in a set we've never seen before, with no inkling of how the situation came to pass. They could have cut the final 30 seconds and left a grim ending, which would have wrapped up the main plot quite adequately. Not one of the best of the bunch.
