It Doesn’t Have to be Veteran’s Day to Honor Guys Like This

By Richard K. Noots

War and sports. Almost two sides of the same coin, yet also incredibly different. Both can breed inner strength through suffering, which is a quality we can all find endearing. Louis Zamperini is one such man who went through enough suffering for everyone reading this article and myself. After competing in the 5,000 meter race in the 1936 Olympics, he joined the Air Force. In less than two years of his military service he ended up getting stranded in the ocean for 47 days, only to have his rescue be a capture and his stay was at a Japanese POW camp. However, he has remained Unbroken, and you can view his story in theaters soon.
