Al Capone relased from prison today

On this day in 1939, November 16, 1939, my uncle Al Capone was released from Federal Prison after serving his sentence for income tax evasion. My family has a big welcome home party for him. My mother was pregnant with me and my uncle was asked to be my godfather and he agreed. My family discovered very soon that my uncle needed medical help because of the treatment he received in prison. He was in a hospital in Baltimore when I was born. His son stood in for him when I was baptised.
