Mr. Archuleta served proudly and honorably in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Randolph. Although he was blind, he went on to earn his Bachelor and Masters degree in Psychology at the University of New Mexico. Anyone who knew him could easily forget that he was blind because of his inordinate ability to perceive his surroundings and were taken by his charm and wit.
