I use what I learned every day. My capstone course paper, ‘Current State of Morale & Readiness of the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve’ was reviewed by the Coast Guard for implementation. The homeland security courses at Monmouth greatly enhanced my awareness of terrorist, cyber, and other multifaceted threats and vulnerabilities.
