HONOR FIRST: The Story of the United States Border Patrol is the first comprehensive history of the U.S. Border Patrol. It is divided into four volumes, each covering a critical stage in its development. In this Volume One, the story is told from its humble beginnings at the end of the 19th Century and turn of the 20th Century through Prohibition and World War II. Volume One addresses the forerunners of the U.S. Border Patrol, the Mounted Guards, Mounted Inspectors, Mounted Watchmen, and Chinese Inspectors, and then, the birth of the U.S. Border Patrol and the first twenty-five years of Service of the Border Patrol Inspectors from 1924 to 1949. Where possible and available, actual quotes from Border Patrol Inspectors, Border Patrol Agents, leadership and historical documents are utilized. Background information is also provided to give additional perspective. Historical photographs are included to complement the writing and hopefully add value to Honor First: The Story of the United States Border Patrol.
