In May 1957, Raymundo graduated from the ROTC program at St. Mary's University in San Antonio, Texas and was commissioned a second lieutenant of the field artillery in the United States Army. Serving his beloved country proudly for 20 years, he retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1979. LTC Raymundo R.
