How do I convince my band director that we need to march a piccolo?

Our band is small, about 45 people. We have about 4 flutes counting me. I just learned to play the piccolo for concert season, and I am great at it. We need the woodwind sound a piccolo gives. My band director knows I can do it, but every time I ask him about it he is kind of dodgy. He says, "Well, the music doesn't call for a piccolo, but maybe we can write it in." He doesn't even have the music ordered!!! How do I convince him that we need to march the piccolo? Not just because I want to play it, but because we need the sound. By the way, our show is called "Aqua" by Gary P. Gilroy.

    John Phillip Sousa did. Always. Tell him that. The Stars and Stripes Forever isn't the same without one.
