Hello and welcome to the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs website.
We invite you to browse our web pages for information on benefits, services and programs. As the voice for veterans, we advocate for and provide the pathway for all veterans and their families to receive the benefits they are eligible for.

Learn more about South Dakota's Fallen Heroes Bridge Dedication program.
In 2019, Governor Kristi Noem and the South Dakota Departments of Veterans Affairs, Military, and Transportation launched the Fallen Heroes Bridge Dedication Program. The program will dedicate state bridges to South Dakotans who died while in active service. Naming South Dakota bridges in honor of our fallen gives us the opportunity of remembrance, reflection, and respect—to honor the men and women who gave their lives in service to this nation. They cherished liberty and loved freedom enough to lay down their lives to preserve our way of life. The Fallen Heroes Bridge Dedication Committee will meet annually in April and will select six heroes to honor and six bridges to dedicate. Dedication of the bridges will be held in May-November.
