Spc. Jeremy O. Allmon Ray of Cleburne, Texas obtained his general equivalency diploma before joining the United States Army in March 2000. But when he was at home, he loved to show off by flexing his muscles in the mirror. He would do it just to aggravate his siblings. Jeremy was scheduled to return home in March and to leave the Army altogether in July and because of his love for the outdoors, he had planned to go to college to become a game warden. When he was home on leave the previous October, he four-wheeled with his younger brother along the dirt roads near his parents' home and built a campfire outside the home where he and some of his friends discussed politics. In an interview when he was home on leave, Jeremy told a local newspaper he believed the United States was right to invade Iraq and to stay until that nation was back on its feet. "We can't just leave," he told them. "We can't just start something and not finish it. Then we wouldn't be America." he added. Survivors: Parents, Preston and Lisa Ray; father, David Sullivan; brothers, Preston Ray Jr., David Sullivan and Colton Sullivan; sister, Brentney Bane; maternal grandmother, Betty Love; paternal grandparents, Leonard and Nancy Sullivan and Preston and Faye Ray; nephew, Mason Lee Bane. Jeremy died at age 22 in Taji, Iraq, when an improvised explosive device detonated near his military vehicle.
