Terrorism changed our nation on 9/11 which led to the implementation and creation of the Department of Homeland Security. Under the DHS, the Transportation Security Transportation took on a new role, being on the front line of deterring terrorism on our nations transportation systems. TSA Behavioral Detection Officer Gerardo I. Hernandez was one of the many heroes in the Los Angeles Airport on November 1, 2013 when terrorism reared its ugly head once again. Officer Hernandez had to pay the ultimate sacrifice so that others might live. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and the entire Transportation Security Administration during this very difficult time.
