Tragically, even in tragedies, our society only recognizes those who fight in the front lines as heroes. Dr. Eric Frost, a geologist by roots, is one of those individuals that work heroically in the background to enhance the success of the ground forces.

Dr. Frost is also the co-director of the Homeland Security Master’s Program.
