R.I.P. Louis Zamperini

Louie past away about a week and half ago, I Had the honor of meeting this gentleman, and hearing his story firsthand. He is a Torrance Ca. native who ran track and field in the 1936 Olympic games with Jesse Owens in Berlin Germany in front of Adolf Hitler, whom he met and shook hands with. He and a buddy walked out in front of the Chancellery building and stole a Nazi Swastika Flag only to be caught by German guards who let him keep it. He later served in the Air Corp. in the Pacific theater. His story of faith and redemption is legendary. Peace Louie God Bless You!
