South Dakota Veterans Commission

As a member of the South Dakota Veteran’s Commission Yankton resident Brooks Schild sees his role as advocating for military veterans and their families.

Schild says one project that the commission is involved in is working to establish a national cemetery in South Dakota’s east river area.

Schild says a large part of the project will be to establish an endowment fund to help with the cemetery’s maintenance and upkeep costs into the future.

Schild was recently appointed to a six-year term on the South Dakota Veterans Commission by Governor Dennis Daugaard.
