Morgan State University alum Raymond Scott Dingle has been promoted to Brigadier General at Fort Myer, Virginia. A 1988 graduate of MSU, Dingle has served nearly 30 years in the U.S. Army. His military experience includes tours of duty in Afghanistan, Iraq and, more recently, a command post in Germany.
General Dingle joins a growing list of Morgan graduates rising in the ranks of the U.S. military. Morgan State’s first general officer, Brigadier General George M. Brooks, was promoted in 1979.
