So glad to hear today that after all these years, approval has finally been granted to add Sergeant Cimino's name on the wall of the National Memorial in Washington DC. Raymond, I never met you, but have known your wife Mary Ellen for many years through C.O.P.S. She is a wonderful woman and fought strenuously for these many years to get you the honor that you deserve.

Sergeant Lee G. Tager, Retired
CT Representative of New England C.O.P.S.
