    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.
  • Photo_user_blank_big
    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.

    And, you have a safe (swine flu-free) weekend yourself. What have you been up to lately? I just got back Wednesday afternoon from a four day trip to Germany. It was interesting, but it was good to be home.
