Louis Zamperini Class of 1934

Louis S. Zamperini (born January 26, 1917) is a World War II prisoner of war survivor, inspirational speaker, and former American competitive Olympic runner. He was born in Olean, New York The Zamperini family moved to Torrance, California in the 1920s, where Louis attended Torrance High School. Zamperini wrote (with David Rensin) a book about his life and experiences, entitled Devil at My Heels. Torrance High School's home football, soccer, and track stadium is called Zamperini Stadium, and the entrance plaza at USC's track & field stadium was named Louis Zamperini Plaza in 2004. The local Torrance Airport is named Zamperini Field. Zamperini was inducted into the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame in Chicago, IL, in October 2008.

Ted Tanouye Class of 1937

Ted T. Tanouye (November 14, 1919 – September 6, 1944) was a United States Army soldier and a recipient of the United States military's highest decoration—the Medal of Honor—for his actions in World War II. A memorial to Tanouye was dedicated across from Torrance High School, Torrance, California in 2004. Technical Sergeant Tanouye's official Medal of Honor citation reads: Technical Sergeant Ted T. Tanouye distinguished himself by extraordinary heroism in action on 7 July 1944, near Molino A Ventoabbto, Italy. Technical Sergeant Tanouye led his platoon in an attack to capture the crest of a strategically important hill that afforded little cover. Observing an enemy machine gun crew placing its gun in position to his left front, Technical Sergeant Tanouye crept forward a few yards and opened fire on the position, killing or wounding three and causing two others to disperse. Immediately, an enemy machine pistol opened fire on him. He returned the fire and killed or wounded three more enemy soldiers. While advancing forward, Technical Sergeant Tanouye was subjected to grenade bursts, which severely wounded his left arm. Sighting an enemy-held trench, he raked the position with fire from his submachine gun and wounded several of the enemy. Running out of ammunition, he crawled 20 yards to obtain several clips from a comrade on his left flank. Next, sighting an enemy machine pistol that had pinned down his men, Technical Sergeant Tanouye crawled forward a few yards and threw a hand grenade into the position, silencing the pistol. He then located another enemy machine gun firing down the slope of the hill, opened fire on it, and silenced that position. Drawing fire from a machine pistol nest located above him, he opened fire on it and wounded three of its occupants. Finally taking his objective, Technical Sergeant Tanouye organized a defensive position on the reverse slope of the hill before accepting first aid treatment and evacuation. Technical Sergeant Tanouye's extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit on him, his unit, and the United States Army.

Paul Moyer Class of 1960
