    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.

    Why do we want to move our troops out of Okinawa? It doesn't make sense to me.

    It's easy to care when you allow yourself to open up to others even though there's that risk of being hurt. Still we are supposed to love one another and treat each other as a brother/sister. Thank you for that beautiful comment.

    To Peacebe: You just did what real Americans have been doing for over 200 years, showing that you care.

    It has been an honor welcoming and talking to you. Thank you for the very kind comment. I just like to reach out to people. It must be the eight years of ushering and over 16 years of working with people that might have something to do with it. God bless you.
