State Director Walter Peralse-Reyes Retires

Selective Service System bids farewell to an extraordinary family member, State Director Walter Perales-Reyes. A luncheon was held on Saturday, March 7th, 2015, at La Mallorquina Restaurant in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, to honor him. Director Romo presented Col (Ret) Perales-Reyes with the prestigious Selective Service System Eagle Award in recognition of his extraordinary service to Region II and the Agency. His previous SSS awards include an Exceptional Service Award and a Meritorious Service Award. SD Perales-Reyes’ contribution to Selective Service began as an RFO to the PRARNG in 1987 before expanding his military career and later returning to SSS as the State Director of Puerto Rico in May 1993. Since then, he has been a vital asset and member of the Agency. One of his most important accomplishments includes the passage of the Puerto Rico Driver’s License Legislation, which enhances Selective Service registration compliance for eligible men. Col (Ret) Perales-Reyes’ hard work and dedication will sincerely be missed. The Agency staff offers a heartfelt thank you.
