Pereira told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle in 2019 that he began contemplating the similitudes between being an authority and being in the military while he was driving from California to see a companion in Oregon.
“I was contemplating these vets and I was considering the deficiency of (sports) authorities that we have, so as I’m driving north I’m pondering the attributes it takes to be a vet,” Pereira said. “The fixation, the cooperation, the crucial, objectives, all the things I search for in authorities. How might I wed the two together and select vets to become authorities?”
The establishment has just helped various veterans get their beginning in administering, including Jamaison Pilgreen.
