On this 20th Anniversary of September 11th 2001, I am so honored to go Unscripted with my new friend Joaquin Guerrero. Joaquin and his K9 left everything to go be a part of the recovery efforts after 9/11.
In Saginaw, Michigan–a city plagued with gang violence–Officer Joaquin Guerrero sensed God’s call to work the dangerous night streets with his K9 partner, a ninety-pound German shepherd police dog named Rookie. On 9/11, Guerrero and Rookie responded to Ground Zero to help in the search efforts. For seven long days the pair worked ”The Pile” with a never-give-up spirit. With Rookie as his mascot, Guerrero created Precinct 131, an educational program to keep kids from turning to gangs. Michigan & Rookie: Guardians of the Night is a remarkable story of service to community and country.
In this Episode, Joaquin shares his memories of those days and his service to our nation.
