Since before the American Revolution, there have been only 65 Adjutants General of the Army, and the 65th, Col. Jason T. Evans, is a Bellevue College (now Bellevue University) alumnus. Evans joined the Army shortly after receiving a Bachelor of Science in Business degree in 1984.

A native of Baltimore, MD, Col. Evans joined the Army in 1984, after completing his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree at Bellevue College and went on to earned master's degrees in business administration and national resource strategy.
