As a kid, he attended J.N. Dodson Elementary school in Third Ward,

attended Texas Southern University for one year, then he enlisted in
the United States Navy to serve our country as a Machinist Mate
onboard the USS Henry Jackson Gold SSBN 730. During his naval tenure,
he deployed on four strategic nuclear deterrence patrols. His leadership
and hard work ethic awarded him the position of ship's damage control
petty. He was trusted to maintain all the ship's damage control response
equipment in the event of a casualty while supervising a division of 15
sailors. He led the program from a below-average program to an
above-average as noted by Submarine Squadron 17 (SUBRON 17) and
Commander, Submarine Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet (COMSUBPAC). His ship
was awarded the red DC for the best damage control program on the
waterfront. He was honorably discharged from the Navy in 2013 and
returned to work in Texas's oil fields.
Since then, Rashard has worked hard as a blue-collar Texan. He has worked in the oil field, chemical plants, and the Texas Medical Center as a plumber and mechanical technician. In 2017, he reenlisted in the Texas Army National Guard. He was deployed to the South West Texas border to support Operation Guardian Support to impede and deny illegal border crossings, maintain situational awareness, and apply the appropriate time-bound response and law enforcement resolution to increase security and achieve operational control of our Texas borders.
