Ashley Guindon - "Live for something rather than die for nothing!"

Ashley Guindon 
"Live for something rather than die for nothing"
1987 - 2016
(ERAU 2010)

Ashley Guindon, one of the first graduates of the ERAU Homeland Security program, was tragically killed in the line of duty on February 27, 2016, her first day on the job as a Police Officer serving Prince William County, VA.

The Security Studies and International Affairs Department is acutely aware that many of the graduates of our program will enter into fields where they may be placed in harm's way. We will remember and honor Ashley, and the others who follow her into public or military service, for their dedication, bravery, and selfless sacrifice in the line of duty.
