The Swan a.k.a. the Hatch, was DHARMA Initiative Station number 3, first discovered by Locke and Boone. According to its Orientation Film, the Swan was originally a laboratory "where scientists could work to understand the unique electromagnetic fluctuations emanating from this sector of the Island". However, after an "Incident", a protocol had to be followed in which two people would take shifts pressing a button (inputting the Numbers into a computer) every 108 minutes for 540 days, at the end of which replacements will arrive to take the place of the previous inhabitants. It is located in the south-western region of the Island, about a mile inland of the crash of Flight 815. Source: http://lostpedia.com/wiki/Secrets_From_the_Hatch

Text from video:
I'm Alvar Hanso. If you are watching this film, you already know and have worked with Gerald and Karen DeGroot, founders and masterminds of the DHARMA Initiative.
By now, you also know there are many research goals for our joint venture. What you may not know, is why we have assembled the DHARMA Initiative, why we have assembled the greatest minds in the world and given them unlimited funds and access.
As with all you've already been told, you are bound by your honor and commitment to keep what you are about to hear a secret.
In a few weeks, after your induction counseling and survival training, you and your colleagues will be shipped to a top secret facil[ity...]
The precise location of the facility is known only to myself, the DeGroots, and the few high ranking members of my organization. Why all the security, all the secrecy? The answer is simple: Your research is intended to do nothing less than save the world as we know it.
In 1962, only thirteen years ago, the world came to the brink of nuclear war. The United States and the Soviet Union almost fulfilled the promise of mutual assured destruction. A promise they continue to foster through a destructive Cold War. After the Cuban Missile Crisis, both nations decided to find a solution. The result was the Valenzetti Equation. Commissioned under the highest secrecy, through the U.N. Security Council, the equation is the brainchild of the Italian mathematician Enzo Valenzetti. It predicts the exact number of years and months until humanity extinguishes itself. Whether through nuclear fire, chemical and biological warfare, conventional warfare, pandemic, over-population... The results are chilling, and attention must be paid...
Valenzetti gave numerical values to the core environmental and human factors in his equation: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42. Only by manipulating the environment, by finding scientific solutions to our problems we will be able to change those core factors, and give humanity a chance to survive. Although the equation has been buried by those who commissioned it [STATIC] panic. It has always been my belief that we ignore warnings at our own peril; and thus, the DHARMA Initiative was born.
DHARMA is an acronym for Department of Heuristics and Research on Material Applications. It also stands for the one true way. [STATIC] ...and through your research, you will help human... [STATIC].
We have constructed several stations on the island, underground laboratories with the facilities you will need to do your research, with optimal expediency...all of the support you will need, including regular medicine and food drops will be made in perpetuity.
A radio transmitter has also been erected on the island broadcasting in a frequency and encryption known only to us. The transmitter will only broadcast the core numerical values of the Valenzetti Equation. When, through your research, you manage to change the numerical value of any one of these factors, when you have created through science the [inaudible] ... We will know that the one true way has been found.
That is the work to which you have committed yourself. Change the core values of the Valenzetti Equation, and you will change the course of destiny. The fate of the human race is in your hands.
Thank you and namaste. Source: http://lostpedia.com/wiki/Sri_Lanka_Video
Nils Benson joins the U.S. Marine Corps and is shipped overseas to fight alongside the Allied forces. (It's likely that he joined after the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, as all branches of the armed forces received a large number of recruits after this event)
on June 6th, 1944 – D-Day, the Allied forces storm the beaches of Normandy engaging Nazi Germany's forces in combat to retake France in what would become known as the Battle of Normandy.

Mentioned in the Orientation Film, in the episode "Orientation", S2E03
The Orientation film was created in 1980 in response to the Incident happening, and the Swan being retooled to accommodate the results of the "Incident".
From Lostpedia: The Incident was first mentioned in the Swan Orientation Film. Dr. Marvin Candle mentioned that there was "an incident" which resulted in the creation of a protocol that required a code to be entered every 108 minutes. The incident involved a leak in the containment associated with an electromagnetic anomaly. The leak caused an unspecified charge to build up within the anomaly. As the charge built up, the magnetic field associated with the anomaly grew. After 108 minutes, the magnetic field is large enough to damage the Swan station.

M. David Benson, the founder of the Apollo Candy Company, is born to Nils and Elli Benson. from the lost experience: Born in 1938, M. David Benson is the child of Nils Christer Benson, son of Oskar Benson, found of Scandinavian´s revered Benson Chocolatiers. Some would say Benson was a child of strife. His grandfather, Oskar Benson was a man of tradition. Upon learning of his son´s engagement to a woman well below his station, Oskar turned his back on Nils, cutting him from the family inheritance. Leaving Norway, with his pregnant wife, Elli, Nils established a new life in the U.S., joining the U.S. Marine Corps in December of 1941. Sadly, however, Nils Benson lost his life on Omaha Beach just a few short years later. Like many immigrants, the widowed Elli Benson, felt a strong sense of patriotism for her adopted country. Her husband had died defending America, and M. David Benson was raised to cherish his homeland. M. David Benson served America in the Korean War and recounts the moment when he, too, discovered that chocolate ran through his veins: "The six of us were pinned down - scared witless. I knew we´d be lost if we didn´t come together. So I rifled through my pack and found it -- The Benson Chocolate Bar mom had sent. They were expensive. She was poor. But once a month like clockwork, there was that care package. Six ways, I split that chocolate, and even with death staring at us in the eye, not a one of us could deny the smile on his face. It was dead midnight, but for that sweet moment, as we ate that Benson Bar, the sun came up for us all" It was in that foxhole that M. David Benson first envisioned the Apollo Bar. Less than two years later, that vision had become a reality. And, the rest, as they say, is history.http://lostpedia.com/wiki/M._David_Benson

When Locke was sixteen, through his school's Chemistry teacher, he received an offer from Mittelos Laboratories
to come to their "summer camp" in Portland Oregon. Locke refused since his love of
science had made him the subject of ridicule. His teacher, Gellert, mentioned speaking to a Dr. Alpert
about the opportunity, but Locke said he is more interested in sports
and such, to which Gellert said Locke cannot do
those things. Locke responded with his signature "Don't tell me what I can't do" Source: http://lostpedia.com/wiki/John_Locke
