Operation Reaching All Veterans
Yesterday following his State of the State address, Governor Daugaard signed the Operation Reaching All Veterans proclamation. It kicks off the State Department of Veterans Affairs' initiative to reach out to all of the state's 75 thousand veterans. Operation Reaching All Veterans is designed to help all veterans utilize the benefits and services they might not be aware of, whether they served in World War II or were recently deployed to Operation Enduring Freedom. South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Larry Zimmerman discussed the proclamation.
