The annual event, organized by the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs, was held in conjunction with the veterans' benefits training conference for CTVSOs. “Our County and Tribal Veterans Services officers serve as counselors, ministers, lawyers, fellow veterans and much more,” said Larry Zimmerman, Secretary of the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs. “Veterans’ needs vary from mental to physical health needs. These award winners are the best of the best. They care for each and every person that walks through their doors.” “Do we, or can we, say thank you enough? At least from my perspective I cannot and do not,” said Aaron Pollard, Deputy Secretary of the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs. “These awards, which are selected by the recipient’s peers, serve as a way to say thank you for what they have done and are doing. As I’ve stated in the past, everyone who touches the lives of veterans and their families deserves recognition, but there are those who stand tall and go above and beyond the rest of the pack.” Sheila Carpenter, veterans service claims assistant for Hughes, Stanley and Sully Counties, was awarded the 2018 Partner of the Year award. Sheila was recognized for her compassion, commitment, knowledge and professionalism when assisting South Dakota’s veterans. Tom Sparrow, county veterans service officer for Turner County, received the 2018 Outreach of the Year award for being instrumental in recognizing veterans of all eras, making contact with veterans wherever he goes and thanking them for their services. Most recently, Tom worked to honor over 150 World War II veterans in numerous counties.

Symposium, New State Historical Society Book Celebrate State’s Political Culture Veterans Day At The PIERRE, S.D.— Although South Dakota is known for its agrarian conservatism, there is more to the state’s political tradition than simply Republicans or Democrats. The authors of a new book from the South Dakota State Historical Society explore the state’s identity in “The Plains Political Tradition: Essays on South Dakota Political Culture, Volume 3” edited by Jon K. Lauck, John E. Miller and Paula M. Nelson. The volume will be released Sept. 8, during a free symposium at Augustana University’s Center for Western Studies in Sioux Falls. Throughout the event, to be held from 7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. CDT, authors and other panelists will explore South Dakota’s political history and the development of its modern political culture. In this final volume of “The Plains Political Tradition” series, the editors gather essays from 15 historians and other scholars who identify major influences on the political culture of South Dakota. Against a backdrop of agricultural ups and downs, varied religious beliefs, worldwide conflict and powerful personalities, the authors examine ingredients critical to the success and failure of civic movements, legislation, and political campaigns and careers. “The Plains Political Tradition” can be pre-ordered for $24.95, plus shipping and tax, directly from the South Dakota Historical Society Press at sdhspress.com or by calling 605-773-6009.
