I served with Ben at Hq US Army Japan, Camp Zama CID Office during the period of 1957-59.Saw him during his tour in Korea, and years later
at a CIDAA Meeting that Les Denk and I sponsored in Charleston, in 1994. Ben was a very thorough and competent CID Agent and a super great person to work with. We, along with our families spent some very good outings during the tour in Japan. Rest in peace my friend. Carl Craig

Sorry to hear of Ben's passing. I was an MPI at the 40th CID, Fort Dix, when Ben was promoted to WO1, and I got his dollar for his first salute. He was quite a guy. Rest in peace, and peace be with his family. ......Dick
