Operation RAV (Reaching All Veterans)

Mission Statement

The South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs is designating 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. As the advocate for South Dakota’s veterans, our team is at the forefront of the most demanding challenges confronting our state’s veterans.

Operation RAV is designed to assist all veterans, young and old, with disabilities and without, from all eras and branches of the U.S. military.  

SDDVA and County and Tribal Veterans Service Officers will be hosting over 130 open houses throughout the state. Service officers and SDDVA staff will address veterans’ questions about their benefits, including compensation, education, pensions, health care and death benefits.
