Police Casualties and Terrorism: Lessons Learned Overseas
During 2004, 1,080 police officers were killed by terrorists and another 1,370 police officers were wounded by terrorists outside the US. Table one represents the number of officers killed and wounded versus the total number of people killed and wounded. The data seems to suggest that police officers who are victims of a terrorist act are much more likely to be killed (as opposed to wounded) than civilians who are victims of a terrorist act.

The Greatest Hunting Stories Ever Told: Twenty-Nine Unforgettable Tales

According to the book description of The Greatest Hunting Stories Ever Told: Twenty-Nine Unforgettable Tales, “If the captivating smile of a young Hemingway crouched over a lion isn't enough to pull you inside the covers of The Greatest Hunting Stories Ever Told, the remarkable prose you'll find throughout its pages will. Its target is serious writing, and it bags some powerful literary prey. Lamar Underwood, long an editor at Sports Afield and Outdoors, has assembled a stellar collection from the pens of Hemingway (naturally), Faulkner, Turgenev, Thomas McGuane, Vance Bourjaily, Patrick O'Brian, Robert Ruark, and Teddy Roosevelt, all of whose prose hunts for big answers as well as big game.


While clearly addressed to the fraternity of hunters, the essays and stories in this collection transcend the boundaries of the field. McGuane, writing passionately about how the hunt for food defines who we are in "The Heart of the Game," observes, as Sitting Bull did before him, "when the buffalo are gone, we will hunt mice, for we are hunters and we want our freedom." Hemingway, in "Remembering Shooting-Flying," an Esquire column from 1935, keeps world affairs in perspective when he wonders "how the snipe fly in Russia now and whether shooting pheasants is counter-revolutionary." "The Forest and the Steppe" is one of Turgenev's evocative "Hunter's Sketches"; evocative also defines "Mister Howard Was a Real Gent," one of Ruark's marvelous "Old Man and the Boy" contributions to Field & Stream.”

Cast into an arena of international intrigue, he races against time and around the world to unravel the mystery of Power Grid and to keep it out of the hands of corrupt government officials and nations intent on turning an ancient technology into a modern weapon of war.

According to the description of the Blue Book of Gun Values: 31st Edition, “The new 31st Edition of the Blue Book of Gun Values by S.P. Fjestad has been expanded to more than 2,300 pages, easily making it the highest page count of any firearms book currently in print. All new 2010 makes and models have been included, plus updated values on discontinued firearms and antiques. Paramilitary rifle values have also been brought up-to-date, reflecting recent major changes resulting from political changes in Washington, D.C. Once again, the 80-page Photo Percentage Grading SystemTM provides high resolution color images that are the last word to help ascertain any firearm s correct condition factor based on the percentage of original condition. Revolvers, pistols, rifles, and shotguns are also shown separately, in addition to NRA Antique Condition Factors. Other sections have also been expanded, including serialization, and the helpful Trademark Index, which lists all pertinent information on many of the world s firearms manufacturers, distributors, and importers. Most of the information contained in this publication is simply not available anywhere else, for any price!”


Ron Coburn said of Blue Book of Gun Values, “The heart and soul of Arthur Savage is still evident in the current Savage family and we are proud to continue his dream to be the best in the firearms industry. His fully enclosed, hammerless lever action rifle designed to use smokeless powder was an immediate success and created a technology revolution that continues today. Over the editions, the Blue Book of Gun Values has provided our company with an excellent history of firearms development, in addition to letting the consumer know the most up-to-date and current values for both modern and antique firearms.”

Courage and Sacrifice – A Historical Novel

On October 14, 2010, Conversations with Heroes at the Watering Hole will feature a discussion with former Marine Corps Artillery Officer and novelist Gerald Gillis.

Program Date: October 14, 2010
Program Time: 1700 hours, Pacific
Topic: Courage and Sacrifice – A Historical Novel
Listen Live:
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/lawenforcement/2010/10/15/courage-and-sacrifice-a-historical-novel
About the Guest
Gerald Gillis, USMC, is “a native of Atlanta, GA, married and the father of three grown children. He is a graduate of the Univ. of Tampa (MBA) and the Univ. of Georgia (BBA). After college, he served for three years as an artillery officer in the Marine Corps, with duty stations in the U.S. and Okinawa/mainland Japan. He then worked as an executive in the medical-devices industry where he later traveled extensively, both foreign and domestic. He became a full-time novelist in 2009. Shall Never See So Much is my second novel. His first novel was published twenty-five years ago, and did reasonably well, but he decided that his business career would better accommodate educating my kids and paying the mortgage than a career as a neophyte novelist. Hence, his writing career has resumed after a bit of a hiatus. Gerald Gillis is a member of the American Legion and several Marine Corps-related associations. Gerald Gillis is the author of Shall Never See So Much.

According to the description of Shall Never See So Much (released in March, 2010), it “is an historical novel about a brother and sister in the year 1968. The brother is a Marine officer serving in Vietnam at the time of the Tet offensive, and the sister works on the campaign of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy as RFK makes his ill-fated bid for the presidency. It is a story about courage and sacrifice, and the affects of those times on what could be considered a typical American family. It is not so much a war novel as it is about a time in history when the nation was at war, sometimes even with itself. It was recently awarded a Readers Favorite award for its historical fiction category.”

Terrorism, safety and situational awareness
When the first aircraft struck the World Trade Center what were your thoughts? Was terrorism your first thought? Or, was your first thought more like How could that happen? The first crash caught most people trying to figure out what human or mechanical error could have caused the crash. However, a little over 15 minutes later and the instant Flight 175 came into view we knew we were under attack. As the jet slammed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center our view changed and the response of police and fire personnel to the WTC and the other incidents changed.
