Basecamp Guests: Governor Paterson, Leslie Robinson, Diane Hawkins & Brenton Briggs

Episode Excerpt: You don’t measure veterans by whether they got injured or who got killed or who survived.  Many missions it’s known not everyone is coming back. It’s people who not only risk their lives as our police officers and firefighters do every day. But get into situations where they know before they go on a mission that a certain number of them might not come back. That is the highest sacrifice human beings make.

-Governor Paterson
