Louis Silvie Zamperini was born on January 26, 1917 in Olean, N.Y. He was an American track and field Olympian and World War II prisoner of war. His extraordinary tale of endurance after being shot down in the Pacific became the subject of a bestselling book and film. In 1952 Zamperini opened Victory Boys Camp for troubled youth on a site in the Angeles National Forest. The camp operated for many years, but eventually closed. Zamperini's family decided to reopen the camp in 2015. He died on July 2, 2014.
