Overcoming The Odds

 The statistics for Antonio were grim. Chances were that he'd end up like most of his friends and family. But then, to the surprise of all, he graduated high school with honors, and a whole new world of opportunity lit up before him.

Based on his own life story, Overcoming the Odds, details the miraculous account of a boy who became more than anyone ever thought possible. From joining the military as a teen to serving eight years in the US Air Force, from war on the streets of Louisiana to war on terrorism in Iraq, the book realistically portrays the heartache and desperate challenges it took to rise above his austere beginnings.

More importantly, it echoes his personal belief that there is an incredible, undeniable strength in every person to overcome the odds.
