Gov. Daugaard proclaims Aug. 7th as Purple Heart recognition day

At the request of the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs, Gov. Dennis Daugaard has proclaimed Monday, Aug. 7, 2018, as “Purple Heart Recognition Day,” calling on all South Dakotans to honor those men and women who are recipients of the Purple Heart Medal.

“While we are grateful to all of those who have served our nation, the 7th of August is a day designated to remember and recognize the sacrifices endured by those members of the Armed Forces of the United States who have been awarded the Purple Heart Medal,” said Larry Zimmerman, Secretary of the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs. “It is fitting to set aside a day to recognize those who have been awarded for their extraordinary sacrifices.”
