The 24 year old recently received a meritorious promotion to Staff Sargaent. Sgt. Leek has also received a Purple Heart while serving his country in Afghanistan.

He is married and the proud father of a son and daughter. He currently is stationed at a naval base in Georgia, but come April, will be serving a three-year tour of duty in Hawaii.
