Statement on the Murder of Lt. Col. Charles R. Ray, Assistant Army Attache in Paris
January 18, 1982
Lieutenant Colonel Charles R. Ray, our Assistant Army Attache in Paris, was a distinguished
career officer. He gave his life in the line of duty as surely as if he had fallen in battle. Our hearts
go out to his family in their bereavement, and the wanton act of his murderers reinforces our
determination to stamp out international terrorism and prevent similar tragedies in the future.
