John Pray’s father was a career Army officer who served during WWII where he survived the Bataan Death March and three and a half years as a POW.  John’s father later reflected on how hard it must have been on his mother during all of his years of service.  His example and sentiment were driving forces in John’s future.  Pray joined the United States Air Force and retired after serving 27 years in a variety of roles including Director of the White House Situation Room.  After retirement, Pray didn’t stop serving military families.  In May 2015, he is the acting President/CEO of Operation Homefront whose mission is to help build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive, not simply struggle to get by, in the communities they have worked so hard to protect.
