Raoul became an entrepreneur at 16, helping to grow thousands of avocados and plums, as well as selling them. From spreading fertilizer to picking the crop, to personally packing and selling the products to mom and pop markets; he did it all. This experience in spreading fertilizer has served him well in his career.

After the invasion he reverted to his prior rank of E-5 (Sergeant) and was discharged as an E-7 in 1967.
