My name is Nicholas Alfonso, and I am currently a Sergeant/Squad Leader for Charlie Squad in HSI Post 601, I began this incredible journey back in 2019. Currently I am a junior at St. John's University where I am majoring in Homeland Security - Intelligence. I have many memories with my family at HSI Post 601, however my favorite memory would be when we presented our Mock Case to an AUSA and a Federal Judge at EDNY. This post has done many things for me while teaching and exposing me to various things in HSI. The post has prepared me in every way for a career in law enforcement. Most importantly, the Post has introduced me to my second family. Whenever we are together, there is a never a dull moment, and I know we'll always have each other's backs. I'm so happy I was given a chance to join HSI Post 601 and thank all the advisors that help the program be as great it is!
[Bio in Leadership]
I am an Explorer for HSI Post 601 and a Senior at Queens Metropolitan High School. The most memorable event in the post was the spring competition. It has allowed me to gain confidence and learn tactical techniques while gaining further trust and friendships with fellow explorers through various scenarios and training.
