Cesar served in the U.S. Army, active duty reserves, from 2005-2013.  Cesar was a U.S. Army Nurse Officer (66H) serving in Walter Reed Army Medical Center and deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom 2007-2009 with the 86th Combat Support Hospital.  Cesar served as a head nurse, charge nurse, and finally, a critical care nurse in Iraq.
