Michael Mabee – about the author

Who I Am

Command Sergeant Major Michael Mabee, Tikrit, Iraq 2004

Command Sergeant Major Michael Mabee, Tikrit, Iraq 2004

I’ve worked as an urban EMT and paramedic. I’ve worked as a suburban cop and for the federal government. I’ve had a good deal of military training, two wartime deployments to Iraq, and two humanitarian missions to Guatemala.

CSM Michael MabeeI was decorated by both the army and the federal government for my actions on 9/11 at the World Trade Center. But I have to say that my favorite “decoration” was having one of my troops in Iraq say to his first sergeant after a convoy: “that sergeant major is a hard ass!”

So, I have a great deal of experience – both overseas and in the U.S. – seeing what the world looks like when things go wrong.
