After retiring from the Army, Leon held financial management positions in two Inspector General Offices (the Small Business Administration, and the Department of Energy). He also worked for the Transportation Security Administration and US Coast Guard performing budgeting, accounting and reporting assignments. He is presently the deputy financial management division chief with the Office of the Chief Financial Officer, US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Leon’s military experience includes stateside and overseas assignments in positions of increased responsibility, culminating in command of a finance unit in Germany.  One of the highlights of his military career was his work with the On-Site Inspection Agency (now the Defense Threat Reduction Agency), where he was the principal financial advisor to the team negotiating cost issues with representatives of the former Soviet Union relating to the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.  There are two inactive nuclear missiles displayed in the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC, as a direct result of Leon’s work with OSIA.
