Uncle Ray was the third child born to Wayne Miller and Icie Cunningham Miller.
Only a handful of pictures of Uncle Ray have come down to us.

This location means that Uncle Ray was in the US 7th Army which eliminated the "Colmar Pocket" in France in February 1945 then crossed the Rhine River in March to enter the Schwarzwald, or Black Forest, region of Germany.
Ray Miller was a Technician Fifth Grade since his arm rank has two stripes with a "T" below them.
Ray would have been addressed "Corporal" or "Tech Corporal".
Above his rank is the US 7th Army insignia on his shoulder. On the lower left sleeve Ray has two Overseas Service Bars meaning he had completed one year of overseas duty - one bar for each 6 month period.
