Adjutant General Reisch Headlines USD Military Ball

VERMILLION, S.D. – University of South Dakota alumnus Adjutant General Timothy A. Reisch will headline the 97th annual USD ROTC Military Ball this Saturday, March 25.

Appointed by Governor Dennis Daugaard in 2011, Reisch serves as the Commanding General for both the South Dakota Air and Army National Guard. He received a master’s degree in administrative studies from USD in 2011. He also earned a master’s degree in strategic studies from the United States Army War College in 2005.

The military ball is where the most deserving USD ROTC students are honored. “This event is an official military function teaching cadets the importance of professional decorum and formal protocol,” said Thomas Gorman, assistant professor of military science at USD. “At the event, we will also present awards to our most deserving cadets and enjoy a meal among our colleagues.”

The ball begins at 6 p.m. at the Muenster University Center.
