Hometown Heroes: Corporal Randy J. Fuller


Corporal Randy J. Fuller graduated mid-term from Pekin Community High School with four years of R.O.T.

He then graduated from the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego in May of 2009.

Randy has since served two years with the Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Team, or FAST.

In his time with FAST, he completed two tours in Guantanamo Bay.

He was also deployed to Bahrain, training in Kuwait and Jordan.


Randy went on to spend 100 days inside the U.S. Embassy during the Egyptian revolt in Cairo.

He is currently on a deployment to Afghanistan, hoping to return in the late spring or early summer.

Randy's family describes him as a die-hard Steelers fan, who loves country music and his Camaro.

They say they couldn't be prouder of his military service.
