According to a representative from Johnson’s office, “Dusty has honored more than 100 South Dakota Vietnam Veterans with the Vietnam Commemoration Pin since last year. The Vietnam Commemoration Program is a partnership with the Department of Defense and Congress.” 

Twelve veterans were honored at the Veteran’s Memorial in front of the Sanborn County Courthouse last Tuesday.
