Randy Leer was born and raised in Hays, Kansas a town of about 20,000. He joined and spent five years serving in the U. S. Navy as a Hospital Corpsman (medic). No matter how many times he may have thought it wasn’t, he can look back and know it was one of the best decisions of his life.
From 2002 to 2006, Randy lived in Japan as part of his duties in the Navy, and loved it. he decided to leave the Navy with plans of getting an education and returning as an officer. After leaving, he affiliated with the Reserve and was told at that time he was no longer fit for deployment due to medical reasons.
Randy attended Fort Hays State University for four years, studying Political Science/Pre-Law and Geography. He was a member of FHSU Democrats, Pre-Law Society, and Pi Sigma Alpha National Political Science Honor Society. He wrote a regular political column in the university paper.
Since then, Randy married the love of his life and joined his wife in her Navy career. They been stationed in Guam and now in San Diego. They both love San Diego and hope to settle down here.
With all of these changes, he decided to change his overall plans and have shifted to the career field of technical management and project management. Randy now attends DeVry and loves it. He is planning to graduate from DeVry in December 2011 with a Bachelor of Science and from FHSU shortly after that with a Bachelor of General Studies with emphasis in political leadership and geography and a minor in international business and economics. He plans to immediately start work on a Master of Business Administration in finance and international business at FHSU and then start work on a Master of Public Administration through DeVry.
Randy is a proud Democratic Socialist. He explains it this way, "Fiscally and economically I favor the individual over the corporation and the middle and lower classes over the wealthy. As far as social issues I believe that government should have little intrusion in to the private citizens life aside from taxation and providing services. It is funny because I left the Navy as a pretty conservative person who watched Fox News and the O’Reilly Factor frequently. Since I’ve been receiving education and reading more and just learning more about the world and even our own country, I have been on a constant slide to the left."
