Personal History Miguel Feliciano De Leon was born on December 12, 1987 in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. He is the only child to parents Jose and Griselda De Leon. Miguel has very few memories of growing up in Mexico. When he was five years old, his parents immigrated to the US and settled in Los Angeles. His father found work as a iron worker with a construction company while his mother worked as a night janitor for a local hospital. Since his parents both worked full time, Miguel spent a lot of time alone and being cared for by neighbors. While he had no family in the US, Miguel has always considered the community he grew up in as an extended family. Money was always a concern for his family, though his parents worked hard and saved every bit to make sure Miguel never went without. He was raised to be proud of his heritage, and he was instilled with the hard work and determination that he saw in his parents. Miguel was also raised in the Catholic church. As he grew older, he happened to be passing by a Taekwondo dojo one day and decided to try his hand at martial arts. While his parents could not afford to pay for his classes, Miguel offered to help clean the dojo after classes to pay his way. He found he had a natural fighting ability, especially since his opponents always tended to underestimate his skills. He received his black belt at age 17, and won several local competitions. Throughout high school, Miguel also participated in athletics where he played football as a defensive linebacker.

From a young age, Miguel felt a call to service. The community he was raised in always looked out for each other, and his parents raised him to always help those who were in need. When he was in highschool, became interested in the U.S. Army. While his parents were not overly enthusiastic, they supported his decision to enlist. Serving in the military would also increase his ability to obtain U.S. citizenship which would open many doors for their son. After graduating, he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He was sent to One Station Unit Training for infantry soldiers at Fort Benning, Georgia where he graduated in the top of his recruit class. Miguel excelled at military life since he was physically fit, but he also was a team player. He showed great leadership potential and helped those in his class by motivating them. After basic training, Miguel’s first assignment was to 4th Platoon, Bravo Company, 16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division in Fort Riley, Kansas. In 2006, Miguel was deployed with his regiment to Iraq where he participated in training new recruits with the Iraqi Army. Upon completion of his tour, he received a commendation and was recommended to attend the next Special Forces Assessment and Selection class upon returning to the States. He also received his US citizenship after serving the required length of time.

While arduous and grueling, Miguel completed SFAS training and received his Airborne and Ranger tab along with the coveted Green Beret and Special Forces tab of the US Army Special Forces. He was stationed at Fort Bragg with the 3rd Special Forces Group in North Carolina. It was here where he met his future wife, Gwen Tate. Miguel fell head over heels for her and shortly before his deployment to Afghanistan, they married in a small ceremony with a few family and friends. He was then deployed to Afghanistan where his company was tasked with locating high value targets in Helman province. During a routine reconnaissance mission, Miguel’s platoon was ambushed by Al Qaeda insurgents, and Miguel was wounded in action. While still in the fight, he managed to pull another wounded member of his squad to safety while exposing himself to enemy fire. His friend would later die in his arms as the platoon was evacuated. This event scarred him for the rest of his life as Miguel struggled to cope with his loss. His wounds had him sent to Germany to recover before he could return to Afghanistan. He received a Bronze star for valor as well as a purple heart before he returned to Afghanistan. After being wounded in action again, he was sent back to Fort Bragg where he was medically discharged from the Army in 2015.

After his discharge, Miguel and his family moved to Williams County for his wife's career. He still felt the call to service, and he decided to apply to the Williams County Sheriff's Office in 2016.
