SPC Pratt, Ray A.

Pratt enlisted in the Army in 1977 as a communication specialist. He stayed in the military before taking a break in came after 1990. Eighteen years later he felt his mission with the military was not complete and joined the Army Reserve in 2009.

His initial decision to join the military after his parents were unable to afford college tuition, despite a basketball scholarship. Three of his uncles were Vietnam vets who encouraged him to pursue a career in the military.

“They made the decision to join easier and prepared me for what to expect,” said Specialist Ray.

My military awards include: Army Service Ribbon, NCO Professional Development Ribbon, Good Conduct Medal (3RD) Army of Occupation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Overseas Service Ribbon W/Number 2.

I was born and raised in Troy, NC. I graduated from East Montgomery High School 7 June 1977. I am currently studying at Central Texas College.

I enjoy playing and watching basketball.
