The story of the best-selling book Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand about the life of 1936 Olympian Louis Zamperini, WWII M.I.A./P.O.W. survivor, is a riveting story of survival, suffering, salvation and forgiveness.  Former NSGS program chairman and WWII Air Force B-29 pilot, Byron Kinney, will share his personal connection to this fascinating story via his B-29 mission to Naoetsu, Japan, that was instrumental in saving 700 starving POW's including Louis Zamperini as well as the continuing story of their relationship and events in their lives especially during the past 25 years. Of interest is the fact that Byron starting writing his book about this story titled A Mission of Mercy Touches Two Lives: A Pilot Meets a POWfor his kids in the original NSGS writing group he started in 1992 while serving as program chairman.
