PIERRE, SD (KELO) - The South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs is pleased to announce the launch of its new website. The new site is designed to offer veterans a centralized clearinghouse of valuable resources accessible from anywhere in the world.
In conjunction, the Department has added a mobile website, making it easier for veterans to access information from their smartphones or tablets.
"If we are going to reach out to the new generation of veterans who grew up with computers and the Internet, we have to capitalize on those technologies," said Secretary of Veterans' Affairs Larry Zimmerman. "Our new website is designed to highlight the benefits and programs available to them, as well as provide veterans with a list of experts ready to assist them in maneuvering through their benefits."
An estimated 75,000 veterans live in South Dakota and that number increases as our troops return home each month.
