Lou Spoltore in 1938 immigrated to the US from Italy at the age of 13. In 1943, at the age of 18 he was drafted into the US Navy. He rose to the rank of Seaman First Class while assigned to the 144th Seabees. He served in the South Pacific on the island of Guam, other than Seabee duties he was responsible for approx 150 captured Japanese prisoners on work details.
