I've worked as an urban EMT and paramedic. I've worked as a suburban cop and for the federal government. I've had a good deal of military training, two wartime deployments to Iraq, and two humanitarian missions to Guatemala.
I was decorated by both the army and the federal government for my actions on 9/11 at the World Trade Center. But I have to say that my favorite "decoration" was having one of my troops in Iraq say to his first sergeant after a convoy: "that sergeant major is a hard ass!"
I wrote this book because I have spent my entire adult life in the service of this country and its people. I feel that protecting the country and our communities is still a worthy cause.
