South Dakota Web Roundup
Nov 9, 2012
Participants in Platte’s Paralyzed Veterans of America Hunt are feasting today in preparation for a little hunting tomorrow. The event helps veterans with disabilities to take part in a favorite South Dakota tradition.
Box Elder will be celebrating Veterans Day weekend with a parade honoring the Iwo Jima Flag Raising Unit, World War II veterans, and all those who have served the United States. Veteran Ralph Griffiths will tell the story of the battle for Iwo Jima at a luncheon following the parade.
Lakota culture has long honored warriors. That respect extends to modern-day veterans as well. Rose Kern writes about that respect at Prairie Edge.
We've written about many South Dakota heroes and their sacrifices. Lemmon's Gordon Lippman fought in World War II and Korea before falling in Vietnam. Herbert Littleton of Spearfish met his end in a split-second act of bravery in Korea. Joe Thorne was a football star in Beresford and at SDSU before he went to Vietnam. Take a moment to remember them and other veterans this weekend.
