Air Force Airman Derek R. Fulton has graduated from the Ground Radio Communications Equipment Apprentice Course at Keesler Air Force Base, Biloxi, Miss.

The course is designed to train airmen to employ a diverse combination of communications equipment, which included fixed and mobile, low and ultra high frequency, amplitude and frequency modulation, and different modes of sideband transmission. Students learned to install, maintain, and repair high-powered ground communications equipment, including transmitters, single and multichannel receivers, and transceivers used for voice and data communications with aircraft and worldwide ground stations.

He is the son of Evonne I. Cusatis of Putnam St., West Hazleton and David J. Fulton of Hudsondale St., Weatherly.

Fulton is a 2004 graduate of Hazleton Area High School.
