Donald was on my team at Ft. Polk in the seventies. I helped him put in for his warrant commission. If I remember rightly, he was into making wall clocks and did woodworking.He made me a plaque of the state of Louisiana. I took him hunting and showed him some Louisiana swamps.He was a good friend.I just found out abut his passing. Rest in peace my old friend.

I served at Fort Jackson 86-88 and for part of that time Don Heimall was my GC Team Chief. Don's forte was report writing / documentation, Crime Scene Examinations, where he employed extreme attention to detail. He was an outstanding example and mentor in those areas. A tremendous professional. RIP Don.

Don was at Fort Jackson CID in 1987, when I arrived. He retired about a year later. I found Don to be a very nice guy with a good sense of humor. He certainly lived a very fulfilling life. I'm sorry to hear of his passing and had hoped to run into him at a CIDAA function. My best wishes go out to his surviving family members.
