Chief Mike Pimentel was a friend of mine. In addition to being a Police Chief/Officer with Real Compassion for People, He was an Outstanding Photographer!!!. When Chief Pimentel worked as a Police Officer for Corpus Christi Police Dept; he also had a photo studio/photos processing lab called "Flashback Photo". Mike frequently processed film for me for my photo shoots!. Also, we had a very enjoyable experience photographing a model together in his studio. It is such a shame & tragedy that The Government does NOT offer sufficient protection for The Vietnam Veterans War Heroes; other than their Current Inefficient & Covert protection programs! Rest in Peace, Mike. My love to You, and your lovely wife, Brenda.
