From an early age, Chris Cruz had a bit of an entrepreneurial spirit.

He used to sell chocolate bars in elementary school. In middle school, he brought Capri Sands to a classmate to sell for his dollar.

“I think I always wanted to be my own boss,” said Cruz, who was medically discharged from the Army last month at Fort Bragg.

His own path to becoming a boss continued with joining the Army, which he had wanted to do since he was five years old.

“I was born on Guam before moving to Kentucky. Most people from Guam enlist in the military to get off the island,” he said. “But I also enlisted for service. Most of my family are military.”
