Location
American Legion

The Clay and Turner County Veteran Service Officers and the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs will be hosting an open house for veterans and their families, on Thursday, May 15, 2014 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. The open house will be held at the American Legion, 921 Main Street, Centerville, SD.

The South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs (SDDVA) has designated 2014 as their year to reach out to all 75,000 South Dakota veterans. “Operation RAV” is our campaign to identify and make direct contact with South Dakota’s veterans and to make them aware of the benefits and services available to them.

The open house will afford us the opportunity to thank our veterans and assist veterans and their families in acquiring veteran’s benefits and services available to them including compensation for service-connected disabilities, veteran’s and widow’s pension, education and on-the-job training, burial benefits, VA healthcare and numerous other benefits.
