Army Brigadier General to Speak at USD Military Ball
In honor of the 96th annual ball at USD, 25 men and women enrolled in ROTC and their guests will celebrate in the Muenster University Center. The event coincides with the 100th anniversary of Army ROTC.
Brig. Gen. Ronald Place graduated from USD in 1986 with a degree in chemistry and was commissioned a second lieutenant as a distinguished military graduate of the ROTC program. He received a doctor of medicine cum laude from Creighton University School of Medicine.
In 2015, Place was promoted to the rank of brigadier general and took responsibility for the Regional Health Command-Atlantic in Ft. Belvoir, Virginia. He’s responsible for 14 military medical treatment facilities on the Eastern seaboard and in the Southeast.
This weekend, nearly 30 years after graduating from USD, Place returns to campus to share his leadership and medical experience with USD leaders, faculty and aspiring cadets.
