Petero Vucu’s achieve­ment will come as a sur­prise for his fam­ily back in Macu­ata, Vanua Levu. This was af­ter he scooped the 2016 Repub­lic of Fiji Mil­i­tary Forces (RFMF) Best All Round Re­cruit award at the pass­ing-out pa­rade at Forces Train­ing Group in Nas­inu yes­ter­day. No one from Mr Vucu’s fam­ily was present at his pass­ing-out pa­rade as they had no idea that he had joined the RFMF re­cruit­ment train­ing.

“I joined the Fiji Po­lice Force in 2013 straight af­ter I left high school and this year I de­cided to join the RFMF but I did not re­veal the news to my fam­ily who are all back in Vanua Levu. “My pas­sion had al­ways been to be part of the dis­ci­plined force and I ac­knowl­edge my fam­ily for their en­cour­age­ment and prayers,” Mr Vucu said. The 22-year-old from Nasau, Moce in Lau be­lieves that any­thing is pos­si­ble through re­silience and hav­ing faith in the Lord Almighty. “My par­ents are very hard­work­ing and de­spite the ev­ery­day chal­lenge of liv­ing in the vil­lage, they man­aged to send me to school with my other eight sib­lings.

“I will be re­lay­ing the news to them and I be­live that all glory and hon­our is to be re­turned back to the Lord Almighty in heaven.”
