The first issue ran only four pages long. In its last year, “The Wi-Iyohi” grew to an average of 16 pages each month. You can access the collection by going to the State Archives website at history.sd.gov/archives and finding the link to “WiIyohi” under “In the News” or by making a search engine query for South Dakota Digital Archives. As stated in the first issue of “The Wi-Iyohi,” it was believed, “a monthly bulletin will serve a most useful purpose as a vehicle wherein those profes- sionally or otherwise interested in South Dakota History may know what is going on in this department and have a ready means of conveying their impressions to others with like interests.” "Wi-iyohi," meaning "each moon," was submitted as the name for the publication in 1947 by Louisa Riggs, the wife of Dr. Theodore Riggs (grandson of the famous missionary Stephen Riggs) and H.S. Morris of Sisseton, a cousin of Theodore Riggs. The first editor, Will Robinson, former secretary of the State Historical Society, supplied many articles on the history of the state, many of which were the result of questions submitted by members, amateur and professional historians, and students. “The Wi-iyohi" was a tool for the dissemination of little known facts about South Dakota and its pioneers. Within each bulletin are maps, photos and general histories of South Dakota. Historical information in “The Wi-Iyohi” is still referenced today. The bulletins also provide institutional information for the State Historical Society. In total, there are 281 issues of the bulletin available online. The scanning project comprised just over 2,600 individual scans and roughly 2,400 megabytes of data. Conner Ulmen, a 2017 senior at Pierre Riggs High School, scanned the issues as part of the Project Skills program, a statewide, paid work experience program for high school students with disabilities in South Dakota. The program is a cooperative arrangement between the state vocational rehabilitation agencies and local school districts. Volume 24, Number 5 from November 1970 was the last issue of “The Weekly Column: Veterans' Selfless Service Keeps America Free and Safe By Sen. Mike Rounds We recently recognized Memorial Day to honor the brave men and women who died in combat, as well as the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, where more than 116,000 Allied troops stormed the beaches of northern France to free Europe from the Nazis during World War II. These days serve as important reminders of the tremendous sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform and their families. They risk everything to protect the freedoms we enjoy in the United States each and every day. While our debt to them can never be fully repaid, it is our duty to fulfill the promises we have made to them. I have the privilege of serving on the Senate Armed Services and Veterans’ Affairs Committees, where I have been working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to advance legislation that will streamline and improve services for our military families. The Senate recently passed the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, which is a bipartisan bill that will improve the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). It accomplishes this by further empowering the secretary to hold bad employees accountable for misconduct in the workplace and protect whistleblowers from unfair workplace retaliation and providing assurances to the many hardworking VA bill would simultaneously help veterans transition to civilian life and promote entrepreneurship. Most recently, I introduced a bill to allow more flexibility in allocating Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to survivors of service members. The Increasing Transferability of Entitlement to Post-9/11 Educational Assistance Act of 2017 would allow survivors of deceased service members, who had Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits transferred to them, to reallocate those benefits to other designated survivors. I expect this legislation to help the families, who have made enormous sacrifice to our country, to use Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits more effectively amongst a family’s recipients. These are just a few examples of the bills we are working on to improve the quality of life for veterans and their families. I will continue working with my colleagues in the Senate— on both sides of the aisle— to improve and streamline VA services for our nation’s veterans. It is but one small way we can thank them for their service to our country. employees who are dedicated to the care of our vets. I was happy to cosponsor this legislation that will, when signed into law, remove some of the burdensome red-tape within the VA. I have also been working on a few other bipartisan bills to improve veterans’ lives after they leave service and transition back into civilian life. The Veterans To Enhance Studies Through (TEST) Accessibility Act will make sure veterans aren’t forced to use up a full month of Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits in order to be reimbursed for an inexpensive test or job certification. Under current law, vets are required to use a full month of their Post-9/11 GI Bill eligibility to be reimbursed for licensing, certification and national tests, such as those required to be an athletic trainer, fire fighter or medical technician. This legislation would further empower and encourage veterans to use their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to increase their qualifications, which I hope will make veterans more successful when transitioning to civilian life. I also introduced a bill with Senator Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) to help veterans’ access to capital to start small businesses when their service is up. It would waive upfront fees for veterans who apply for the Small Business Administration’s Export Express, Export Working Capital and International Trade loans of $150,000 or less.
