HURON South Dakota Veterans Affairs Department Secretary Larry Zimmerman will be guest speaker at the area-wide Veterans Day program next Monday at the Huron High School auditorium. The program begins at 11 a.m.

He retired in January as the state command sergeant major of the South Dakota Army National Guard after 29 years of service, which included a tour of duty in Afghanistan as the operations sergeant major for nine northern provinces.

Special music will be provided by vocalists from First United Methodist Church in Huron.

Also participating in the event are the American Legion posts from Wolsey, Wessington, Virgil, Hitchcock, Iroquois and Alpena.

The member organizations of the Huron Veterans Council are the Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, 40 & 8, Marine Corps League, South Dakota Army National Guard and Navy Wives Club.

The public is welcome. For those unable to attend, KIJV radio will broadcast the program.
