Dan Holohan had no idea what he wanted to do when he was in high school. A helpful guidance counselor told him he should be a cop simply because he was a big guy with an Irish name. So he went to the State University of Farmingdale and received an associate’s degree in police science. However, upon graduating in 1969, the last thing Holohan wanted to be was a police officer.
“The world was on fire — it was crazy,” he says of the time.
