Best Soldier IN the World

Raymond Staley is with 5-101 avn he has been deployed since march 2009 his expect dated back is march 2010. Raymond Staley is a BlackHawk Crew Chief deployed in Kandahar Afganistan. This deployment has been the worst possible for Bravo Company Lancers. Starting with June and losing SSGT brandon silk in a blackhawk crash effected the crew but they pushed on. In september they had the largest blackhawk crash in Afganistan to date. Killing Rays crew 5 died and 4 navy seals. The lancers were devistated along with ray as he lost his closest brothers in arms. And still the lancers moved on. The hardest hit was the death of one of his best friends last month. Ray staley is dealing with not only losing his crew back in september but also his dear friend. The lancers have had such a hardtime this year and ray has pushed on. He reasked me to marry him before deployment because we were married in 2008. Ray is the father of Emeory and an amazing daddy. This holiday season has been so hard with the loss of his friends and being away from us. We are trying to rekindle our marriage due to deployments and this giveaway would be amazing. It would be the honeymoon we never had :) I pray every day emeorys daddy is safe and he comes home to us. If I could have one wish it would be that he is recognized for the stellar soldier he is and finally be recoginized. Ray has always been the nice guy, honest guy, and hardworking and always comes in last place. I just for once would love him to be happy n recoginized for his military work and the amazing person he is!!!
