FLEOA Honors Our Fallen Heros

Dear FLEOA Member,

As we commemorate the 14th year of remembrance on 9/11, let's all take a moment to think about our heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice that day. Among the 72 law enforcement heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice on 9/11/01, we lost three federal heroes:

Leonard Hatton - FBI
Craig Miller - USSS
Richard Guadagno - USFWS 

Subsequent to the honorable 9/11 first response, we lost two additional federal law enforcement heroes who succumbed to cancer caused by the extensive toxin exposure:

Billy Sheldon - ATF
Zacarias Toro - USMS 

Please honor their sacrifice with your remembrance, thoughts and prayers.‎ FLEOA will continue to advocate for our heroes and their families, and ensure they are honored on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Wall in DC. Additionally, as a member of the PSOB Working Group, FLEOA will continue to advocate for the Public Safety Benefits Program to approve the claims filed by the families of our fallen heroes who died from 9/11 related illnesses. 

Stay strong, stay safe, and always remember our fallen heroes.

 -Jon
