On our season premiere of South Dakota Focus, we took the program on the road to our new Black Hills Bureau as we zeroed in on veterans issues.
We talked about the priorities of the new U.S Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin. We also examined the CHOICE program and what the future of this program could look like. Information on services available to veterans and their families is a key issue for the VA, we learned more how the VA is educating everyone on these services including new services through VA Facilities.
Our guests were:
Larry Zimmerman, Secretary of the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs
Darwin Goodspeed, Director of the Royal C. Johnson Veterans Memorial Medical Center in Sioux Falls
Sandra Horsman, Director of the VA Black Hills Healthcare System in Fort Meade and Hot Springs
