Citadel Alumni Director Mike Rogers has connections at the FBI thanks to an earlier 20-year career with the agency. 

Now he gives criminal justice majors the benefits of his connections with an annual trip to Washington, D.C. 

Earlier this month, nine cadets toured the FBI and met with FBI director Robert Mueller. Muller is familier with The Citadel according to Rogers who said the director recalled his days in combat in Vietnam when he had Citadel grads on his left and his right.

"I knew they would not let me down," Mueller told the group. "I have the highest regard for The Citadel and what it produces."

The D.C. trip also included tour of the White House and Capitol Hill where the cadets visited with South Carolina Congressman Gresham Barrett, Citadel Class of 1983.
