Over 75 citizens from St. Thomas and St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands received medical care from his unit after Hurricane Maria.
When asked about the mission, Juan Saenz states, “It has taught me to be grateful for what you have, because so many have lost it all. It was a very humbling experience and makes you want to work harder. We have the opportunity!” Since returning, Juan noted he dreams of remodeling his current shop, adding more chairs, and in the future opening additional locations.
Juan began barbering for his family and friends at 12 years old. By the age of 16, Juan got his first official job. Juan then enrolled and barber school and at age 19 received his license from the Lehigh Valley Barber School. When Juan turned 20, he left for military training.
