Benjamin Busch '91.... Raquel Krelle
After graduating from Vassar College in 1991, where he majored in Studio Art, Benjamin Busch did an unusual thing for someone of his milieu: He joined the Marines. During his 16-year service, he went on two tours of duty in the Iraq War, earning a Bronze Star. Between tours, he did something equally unusual for a military officer: acting, most famously portraying police officer Anthony Colicchio on the HBO series The Wire.
