According to the book description of America’s Homeland Warriors, “From Beirut and Baghdad to Los Angles and New York, the war on
terrorism knows no boundaries. What is your police department doing to prevent a terrorist attack in your city? Do the police officers in your community know about the terrorist groups roaming your streets? Steven Rogers answers the above questions and explains what kind of terror is being spread by violent terrorist organizations worldwide and how these organizations plan to bring their terror to America. He shares with police officers how they are now part of a new joint war fighting force that will confront a new brand of “criminal warrior” never seen before on the streets of America.”

DelBagno, a retired Captain from an unknown law enforcement agency in New Jersey.
