Over the course of his twenty year military service, he earned the rank of Sergeant First Class, performed Basic Electronics instructor duties at Fort Gordon, Georgia, and served in two wars: the Gulf War in 1991 and the Iraq War in 2003. Among his decorations are: five Army Accommodation Medals, three Army Achievement Medals, and six Good Conduct Medals. He is married, has two children, a house in Georgia, and a Siberian husky. Raymond’s interests include spending time with family, traveling, boating, fishing, basketball, and playing chess.
