Raymond is Onene Littrell Curtis’ son-in-law:
Raymond enlisted June 25, 1952 and reported to Camp Crowder, Missouri for induction before being sent to Camp Chaffee, ARK for training.
He was trained at artillery school ( Camp Chaffee) and assigned to 'C' Battery, 176th Armored Field Artillery(AFA) Battalion, 5th Artillery Group, 8th Army, Korea (in late 1952) operating a 155mm Howitzer M41 (motorized).
Because there were no Artillery Divisions deployed to Korea, following the movements of the 176th AFA Battalion has proven difficult to date because battalion level records are harder to obtain than larger unit (parent units) records.
In January 1954, near the end of his enlistment Raymond was rotated out of Korea (ahead of his unit) to Camp Carson Colorado (reassignment Center) where he was reassigned to Ft. Riley, Kansas until his discharge in July of 1954.
