It will be difficult when attending CIDAA Meetings to not see Charlie there. He was one of the remaining 13th CID guys who took me under his wing when I was an apprentice. Rest in Peace Brother!!

Again, we lost another great CID SA in Charles Kimmig.
I encountered Charles many times during my years in CID. Charles was one of CID's Finest--R.I.P. Mr. Kimmig--you certainly earned it!
