    Summary: A complete pleasure and total learning opportunity. The time Ambassador Ray took to first educate, then teach me on the best ways to build trust and unity among parties who historically dislike or distrust each other are what make me a success today. I will cherish his mentorship throughout the remainder of my professional career and for the rest of my life.

    Summary: Working with Charles Ray has been an extremely rewarding experience. I have learned more about leadership and managment from him than any other leader in my career. This has been my best assignment in the military primarily because I had the honor to work for Ambassador Ray.

    Summary: ABM Charles Ray is the best Leader I have worked ever for!
  • Photo_user_blank_big
    Summary: I enjoyed Ambassador Ray's ability to set the tone and vision of the Embassy. I enjoyed even more his rare ability to then let us do our jobs while still staying in touch with us. He knew who we were and what we were doing without micromanaging us.

    I hope everyone is having a happy Thanksgiving. The day is just about over here (it's 9:45 pm) which means it's just about half time where you all are. For all those who sent greetings, a special thanks. I do have a habit of sending comments out into the ether, rather than to just one person. I guess that's the writer in me - I want a big audience. :-)

    Okay, I understand now! You do have a habit of making overall comments for everyone to read! It's easier that way! Have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving, my friend.

    I'm hosting a dinner for my Marine Guard Detachment. No chance to work on the book, but I have done a couple of articles on helium and associated content.

    What was your score? I'm glad that you can play regularly! How is it where you are? I'm doing fine. Enjoyed the wedding Saturday in NJ! My step-sister and her new husband looked very nice! Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving!

    Hello to everyone. On Monday evening I left DC, and arrived in Harare, Zimbabwe Wednesday morning. Despite its poor government, it is a beautiful country and the people are really nice. So, I am now located in southern Africa for the next few years.
