Boomer and Craig spent a few minutes talking to the head and CEO of Cantor Fitzgerald, Howard Lutnick. Lutnick saw his company lose over 100 employees during the September 11th terror attacks, and was on hand at the unveiling of the 9/11 Memorial at the World Trade Center yesterday.
He talks about all of the charitable organizations that the company has teamed up with over the years, including the Boomer Esiason Foundation, in this the eighth year of BGC Charity Day. He also chronicles the overwhelming experience of seeing the names of all of the employees his company lost in the attacks engraved into the memorial.
Then, with Lutnick still on the phone line, the guys talk to Army soldier Jeans Cruz – one of the men who played an instrumental role in the capture of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
Listen to his fascinating account of how that scene played out, and also the darker side of now having to deal with war-related health issues including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Boomer and Craig make sure to reward this young man with a special gift at the end of the interview, with Lutnick also there to chime in with his praise for this American hero.
