PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard has declared a veterans day at the State Fair in September and is asking state residents to honor the men and women who fought for freedom.

The South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs said Thursday that Daugaard declared Sept. 3 the veterans day at the fair.

The fair will host a “Salute to Veterans” program that day that will include information about the department’s ideas to honor Korean War veterans next year.

Secretary of the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs Larry Zimmerman says the important role of veterans can’t be denied. He says they have a love for America in common.
