Reflecting on the service and sacrafice of Sergeant Mike Wilson. While his loss is tragic, his 20 years of service to Florida and Charlotte County make his a true Florida Hero. He was in harm's way dedicated to provide for a safer community and his intervention likely spared other innocent victims from being injured and/or killed. Thoughts and prayers remain with Sergeant Wilson's widow, family, loved ones and the members of the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office.
