Louis Zamperini & Me

Home Page

In 2011, I  had the pleasure of traveling with fellow Olympian and friend of almost 30-years, Louis Zamperini.  I have learned much from the 1936 Berlin Olympian and World War II Prisoner of War.  I was honored to pass the Olympic flame to his torch in 1984 and again in 2004.

I was also pleased to have arranged for Louis to meet privately with Billy Graham in June 2011, and in October 2011, for the first and only face-to-face meeting with Laura Hillenbrand, author of the New York Times bestseller “Unbroken.” 

Louis has a great sense of humor as you can see from the picture at the right. 

As Louis likes to say, "Be Hardy!"

In the Olympic Spirit!
