September 11th Changed Everything

Episode Summary

Denise was serving in the Coast Guard during September 11th. She shared how September 11th changed everything. Not only in the military, but also in other aspects of what we now consider normal life. She worked at the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) when it was being stood up and shared all the different challenges they faced starting this new agency. She also advocate for both men and women to stand up to sexual assault. It is something that happens to both men and women and we need not only for people to report that it happens. But for leaders to ensure accountability when it does.
