Louie went on to set records as a runner and even made it to the 1936 Summer Olympics in Germany. In 1941 Louie enlisted in the United States Army Air Forces but while in combat, his plane was damaged and crashed into the sea. After 47 days on the water, he reached land but was immediately captured by the Japanese.
