The Aggressive Life with Brian Tome

Five Marks Summer - A Life Spent Protecting with Rich Miller—9/11 First Responder, NYPD

This episode

Like most protectors, Rich Miller is humble about it all, but this man has given his life serving and protecting the most vulnerable. He spent decades as a distinguished specialist on the NYPD’s Emergency Service Unit, including responding to the 9/11 attacks. It was there, on September 12th, Rich raised an American flag on a makeshift piece of rubble. The photo was snapped by a crime scene photographer and it spread, giving hope to a nation reeling. Rich was part 2,500+ high-risk search warrants and entries while on the force, and gave time to help rescue survivors of an earthquake in Haiti. He is a brave man who will push us all forward.
