ABC News’ Victor Ratner and Sunlen Miller reports:

President Obama will visit the Pentagon tomorrow to meet with Defense Secretary Robert Gates and the Service Chiefs.

White House aides say this is the next in a series of meetings designed to get a comprehensive view of the situation in Iraq and Afghanistan – and the impact on American forces in the region.

While appearing before Senate Armed Service Committee this morning, Secretary Gates confirmed tomorrow’s visit.

This will mark Obama’s first visit to the Pentagon as President.

On his first day in office last week President Obama met with Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Secretary of Defense Gates, and head of US Central Command Gen. David Petraeus. Tomorrow’s meeting will include the service chiefs who run the four military services.
