Louis Zamperini

I met recently with Louie Zamperini and have had the opportunity to photograph him, hear his stories and read his book by Laura Hillenbrand of “Seabiscuit” fame. It is titled “Unbroken” and I couldn’t recommend any other book about struggling, triumphing, struggling again, triumphing again and on and on. Get it!

In the photo above he is nose to nose with the Bombardier’s position in the nose of a B24. This was his position in World War II. His B24 eventually crashed into the Pacific.
