Under everyone’s gaze, Raymond picked up the phone. “Secretary of Defense, What’s the matter?”
The person who called was the Secretary of Defense.
“Raymond, I heard that you went home?”
“Yes, Secretary of Defense. I’m eating now,” Raymond replied.
On the other end of the phone, the Secretary of Defense said thoughtfully, “Well, if that’s the case, then I’ll make it short. The military region has already confirmed the time for the medal ceremony. When the time comes, you’ll come to Washington with Professor Puth and Professor Thorpe.”
“Okay, Secretary of Defense. I’ll contact the two professors when the time comes,” Raymond replied.
“That’s good. Send my regards to your parents. I won’t disturb you while you’re eating.”
After saying that, the Secretary of Defense hung up the phone.
Raymond put away the phone and put it back on the table.
The relatives sitting around all looked at Raymond with surprise and doubt on their faces.
The Secretary of Defense personally called Raymond?
What was going on?
Du du du du.
Not long after he put down the phone, Raymond’s phone rang again.
Raymond smiled apologetically. He picked up the phone and saw that it was an unfamiliar number.
He picked up the phone.
Raymond was the first to ask.
A rough male voice came from the other end of the phone. “Hello, Raymond. I’m the Commander of the Southern Military Region. We met at the celebration banquet.”
Raymond recalled that he did have such an impression. At that time, he had even greeted the other party.
“May I ask why the Commander called me?” Raymond asked.
The voice of the Commander of the Southern Military Region came very quickly. “It’s like this. I would like to invite you to our Southern Military Region to visit the current training situation of our army.”
“It’s not right for our military region to use the Qi and Blood Techniques first. I would like to invite you to come over and have a chat to see if there are any areas where you can improve it. I have already informed the higher-ups. He said that he only needs your approval.”
“Is that so, Commander? If it’s possible, then wait for me to find time to go to the Southern Military Region!”
“Thank you very much. I’ll wait for you at the military region then.”
The commander of the Southern Military Region smiled.
After saying that, he hung up the phone.
Following that, Raymond’s phone rang continuously. Basically, as soon as everyone ate a mouthful of food, Raymond received a call.
Moreover, because the dining table was very quiet, everyone could vaguely hear part of the conversation.
The people who called were basically the commanders of the various military regions, or they were some professors or something.
Of course, they didn’t reveal any confidential information about the scientific research projects.
When they heard these titles, the faces of the relatives became extremely surprised.
What exactly did Raymond do in the military region?
Why were there so many calls looking for him during meal time?
Uncle Raymond couldn’t suppress his curiosity and asked, “Raymond, what exactly do you do in the military region?”
Raymond was stunned and smiled, “I only see each other helping each other in the various military regions. Wherever I am needed, I will go and help. Only then will the commanders of the various military regions know me.”
Raymond definitely could not tell them what he was really going to do. It was a confidential matter. Once it was leaked, there would be a major problem.
When everyone’s relatives heard this, their faces were filled with suspicion. In their hearts, they were instantly suspicious.
To help in the military region, or to help each other in the various military regions?
It was probably not that simple, right? If it was that simple, how could he bring back so many things?
Moreover, the country had allocated such a good house, so it was impossible.
This kid, Raymond, must have made some significant contributions in the army, but no one could guess.
However, seeing that Raymond was unwilling to say more, everyone understood that it was probably due to the principle of confidentiality, so they did not ask further.
After all, no matter what was said, Raymond had really made a name for himself.
He had made a name for himself, shocking everyone. For a moment, all the elders looked at their own little children, their eyes filled with disappointment.
At this moment, Raymond killed all the children from his relatives’ families. He had really become someone else’s child as his parents called him.
“Look at you and smile. Learn more from them. You, Raymond, are truly promising.”
Uncle Raymond sighed and educated his son.
The eldest uncle patted his son’s shoulder. “Why don’t you go to the Military District to explore?”
When the eldest uncle’s son heard this, he suddenly quivered. “Don’t. I can’t reach Brother Raymond’s level. My brother must have made a great contribution, but it shouldn’t be said. It’s a state secret.”
Raymond chuckled and didn’t comment.
Raymond’s father’s face was full of pride.
His son was so successful now, which made him gain a lot of face in front of his relatives although he didn’t know what exactly his son had done.
Raymond’s mother was the same. With a son like Raymond, the two elders couldn’t stop smiling.
At this moment, Raymond’s cousin stood up, held up the wine glass, and raised it in front of Raymond. “Come, Raymond, let me toast to you. You didn’t forget your parents’ kindness in bringing you up. You’re worthy of being a member of our family. I’ll drink it, you can do whatever you want.”
After saying that, his cousin raised his head and downed the wine in his glass in one gulp.
Raymond did not hesitate either. He stood up and downed the wine in his glass in one gulp.
Immediately after, Raymond’s cousin also raised his glass and stood up. “Cousin, let me give you a toast as well. I want to learn from you and hope that you will rise step by step.”
Raymond smiled and said, “Cheers!”
“Cousin, if there’s a chance in the future, I’ll go to the military region to look for you too. Don’t forget your cousin when the time comes.”
Raymond nodded. “Xin, there will be a chance in the future.”
Another cousin stood up. “Raymond, I’ll give you a toast too. You’re too awesome. You must have done something big. Amazing!”
Raymond naturally did not reject anyone. He was very confident in his alcohol tolerance and drank directly.
Very soon, Raymond’s cousin and other relatives had finished toasting him. Raymond acted as if nothing had happened.
The elders of each family looked at their children with admiration and nodded in satisfaction.
At this moment, Raymond’s father began to fight. He filled everyone’s cups once again.
“Come, come, let’s not talk about this anymore. Let’s drink and drink.”
Immediately after, the whole family stopped discussing this and continued to eat.
However, Raymond’s success had left a deep imprint in everyone’s hearts.
At the same time, what made everyone most curious was what kind of great deed had Raymond done to be able to make such a name for himself!
The next day.
Raymond had finished his breakfast and returned to his room to lie on his bed. He looked at the ceiling and the corners of his mouth curled up.
The extra days were so comfortable.
“Open the system store!”
The extra days had always been so carefree. Now that he had completely rested, he wasn’t quite used to it.
He opened the system store subconsciously, wanting to browse through it and see what good things there were.
