I contacted General Krulak, the Commandant of the Marine Corps on July 30, 1998, and asked if I could drop by the Pentagon and visit with him. To my great pleasure, he said, "ABSOLUTELY!"

Dear General Krulak, 

Good morning sir. I do pray you are well this fine day that the Lord gave us. 

General, I know you are a busy man and I will get to the point. I am going to be in Washington Monday and Tuesday next. Is it possible that my wife and I could come and shake your hand? I will keep it down to just two minutes as I know you can spare no more. 

Also, Could I get an autographed portrait from you then? What a great addition to my photos this would be. 

Semper Fi, God bless you, Ben
