Raymond was drafted in January 1942. After his basic military training as a pack artilleryman and light truck driver he was eventually sent to England and assigned to the newly formed Cannon Company 116th Infantry. He trained with the unit for the amphibious attack that was to be part of the invasion of Nazi occupied France. He landed with the unit on D-Day and fought through to the attempt to take Saint-Lo. PVT Price was killed in action on 17 Jul 1944.
PVT Price was repatriated in 1948 and re-interred in the Prairie Street Cemetery in Elkhart, Indiana.
