Out of Queens NY we bring you Mr. John-Peter Cruz!!
RESPECT: " I was in Afghanistan with the military and we were in the motor pool with our up armored vehicles and gear. There were various groups of soldiers all surrounding one person's smartphone, streaming the fight. We were on our way to go on a construction mission outside of Bagram Airforce Base for the Afghan National Army and we were waiting for the interpreter to arrive. Even with everything going on and being overseas we had to watch the Mayweather McGregor fight, I will never forget it."
Currently a motorcycle instructor, John-Peter has his Bachelor's in Accounting and was an internal accountant. (no excitement there believe me)
"I've always been drawn to boxing. Maybe because it was the Tyson era and looked like fun. Can't get enough of boxing movies these days either. Unfortunately, I never had the money to pay for lessons as a kid. I took some lessons here and there in my adult life, but the funds and timing never lined up to be more than a handful of times. When I came back home, I was excited to hear about the veteran's program that Gleason's offers. That program lead me to this unique opportunity."
Major Respect and We Thank you for your service.
