Story from John Comiskey
Assistant Professor, Monmouth University
"I learned the names of my friends and colleagues who made the supreme sacrifice that day. The same men whom I shared police cars and dinners and beers and our children’s little league games. I saw the children at funerals holding their fathers’ police hats and fire helmets."
About. Since 9/11, we have heard amazing stories from CHDS alumni, students, faculty and staff about why they are motivated to serve and committed to protecting the country. The Homeland Security Audio Archive preserves these stories while inspiring the next generation of public safety leaders and serving as a reminder of the sacrifice and dedication that local, state, tribal and federal homeland security officials make on a daily basis.
