The Association recently lost its patriarch with the passing of the legendary Colonel Rex Applegate. A great soldier, combatant and a giant of a man who assisted greatly in the formation of the ICCIA. Colonel Applegate worked with Tank closely and entrusted him with knowledge and information that will see the Association continue with his work and his life-time goals in armed and unarmed combat. Long live his work and memory.
