A Clovis woman and widow of a fallen California Highway Patrol Officer who was killed in the line of duty last year was honored as the 23rd Assembly District’s 2015 Veteran of the Year.
U.S. Air Force Veteran and owner of Fight Girl Fitness Rebecca Law was honored Wednesday in Sacramento by Assemblyman Jim Patterson for her service and dedication to the community.
Law served in the Air Force from 2004 to 2008, earning several medals of service, including the Joint Service Achievement Medal, Meritorious Unit Award, National Defense Service Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.
In 2014 Rebecca, along with her husband, Brian, began plans to open a kickboxing studio geared toward helping women utilize kickboxing and martial arts in order to improve their physical and mental strength.

In the midst of their plans Brian, who was a CHP officer out of Fresno, was killed in a work-related traffic accident along with his partner in Kingsburg. Brian and Rebecca were only two weeks away from opening the studio at the time of his death.
Nevertheless, Rebecca opened Fight Girl Fitness in March 2014. Since then, her business has joined with Whole Body Boot Camp and has locations in Fresno and Clovis. Law is now pursuing her master’s degree in counseling.
