Interview with Oscar Salvatierra, American Legion Veteran
Oscar is a retired combat surgeon who fought in the Vietnam War. He sacrificed his time and efforts to save the lives of wounded soldiers and devoted his work to helping young men achieve their goals. One of the driving factors for his motivation to help young people was his experience in the war, where he tended to people who faced death alone and were cut short of their opportunities. Today, he is a professor at the Stanford Medical School, and he passes his knowledge on to young dreamers so that one day, they too will be able to meet their aspirations. He offers some good advice to future generations: “Never give up. Think big. And try not to worry.” Oscar urges young people to embark on their journey of great expectations, to work hard towards their goal, and fight against distractions in the way.
