The college days of young Saeed coincided with the crucial phase of Pakistan Movement. He joined Military College Jhelum as a teacher on 22-August-1950 and retired from his active service in January 1988. Providence decided to take him away to his eternal abode and thus an illustrious career came to an end on 19-June-1999, his leaving behind thousands of mourners.

At the College, in his dedication, he set the standards and kept working so persistently that the world around him did not bother him in his persuits. He was a unique person to come across, always concerned about the goodness of the college, the boys and their wholesome growth. Prof.Saeed Rashid has left an indelible print on the history of Military College. He will be remembered long as a teacher of great merit and a man of sterling qualities.
