"The South Dakota Army National Guard makes up only 9/10ths of one percent of this nation's National Guard, but we earned 66 percent of the Superior Unit Awards for training year 2016," said Maj. Gen. Tim Reisch, adjutant general of the South Dakota National Guard. "This is yet another example of how the South Dakota National Guard stands head and shoulders above our contemporaries."
