The Road To Perseverance
By: LJ Beam
Mike Murphy And Oscar Vazquez (Compare and contrast)
Oscar Vazquez was an illegal Mexican immigrant and as he was illegal he faced many difficulties and had to deal with adversity. Hes dream was to join the Army but he was illegal so he was not allowed to join. So he joined an underwater robotics team that later joined an underwater robotics competition. That later won in a college league. Oscar later got his independence and then joined a Calvary unit. He was deployed to Afghanistan after one tour he diced to leave the military to be at home more.
So in a way I found both these brave men alike because of there military backgrounds and how they dealt with adversities!
