On August 13, 2018 FWC LE Class 37 engaged in a memorial workout in honor and remembrance that forty-eight years ago today we lost a fellow Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Officer. Office Leon Walker was in pursuit of illegal hunters. Today’s workout represented by squats (weight of responsibilities), running (pursuit), and push-ups (pushing ourselves), our team work and unanimity build our fellow officers through challenge and reflection.

Officer Leon will not be forgotten. Thank you for your passion and commitment to the conservation of Florida wildlife. Class 37 remembers the service and the sacrifice.

Woods, Water, Air, 37’s There!
