A veteran with a “heart of gold,” Randall Hanson is this week’s Warrior of the Week.

From the state of Alabama, he joined the United States Marine Corp. at a very young age. .

Through hearing about his experiences in the Marines, the woman who nominated Hanson said she has grown to view him as a role model for his ability to always be himself and to always be honest to those around him.

“It is rare to see men who have been deployed the same as when they left,” she said. “He is still compassionate, kind-hearted, generous, and sweet.”

Randall has retired from his career in the Marines and is now a police officer in Trenton.

When he is not serving his country or community, he spends time with his wife and three children.
