I was Marine sentry stationed at Treasure Island In San francisco in
1948 or 49-and Madame Chiag Kai Shek
drove up to the in coming gate at about 7:30AM-She was sitting in the rear of the limo with a diver and an
other man in front. I stopped them and asked their business but got no
answer-Admiral Nimitz was the comander
of the pac fleet stationed at T.I. and he had his head stuck out the window wondering what was holding him up-since I didn't know who they were
and they didn't tell me-I direcetd them to the pass and I.D. office-but they just made a u turn and went out the other gate !!! Then the admirals car drove up and he asked me who they were and I told him they looked orienatl and a woman was in the back seat-he hit his drive on the shoulder
and said (go#!! Well it was Madame
Chian Kai Shek and he had and appt with her that morning!!! The headline
in the San Frans paper the next morning read #Madame Ghiang Kai Shek
turned away frrom T.I but gets in the
White house) I thought I was going to be shot !!! Wish I knew the exact date of the paper I would love to get
a copy of it--I'm 81 now and still love the Marine Corps...PS I didn't get shot-but the O.D. had me releaved and asked me if I ever went to the movies !!!!??? John Palumbo

I miss spelled a few words after I wrote my story about Madame Chaig Kai
Shek shood have edited it before posting it--sorry but u get it anyway-
Thx John Palumbo and PS--Admial Nimitz was very understanding--just a
nice person--I met him a few days later--and asked me if I got in any
trouble over it and I told him no and he asid he called my CO which was a Col.
and been in The Corps for about 50 yrs
and asked him not to be hard on me !!!! He was alot nicer that The Lt.
that releaved me and he probably got
into trouble for not letting me know she was coming in that morning--maybe he got shot !!!!!
