During today's PRCA rodeo at the Civic Center Arena, Wrangler Western Wear helped sponsor a salute to the nation's veterans before the rodeo got underway. And down the hall just outside the ice arena, more than thirty banners honoring South Dakotans who have given their lives in military service overseas were on display as well.
Christine Bestgen says, "This is the South Dakota Fallen Heroes Traveling Banners Memorial. Where we are honoring and remembering the service members that we have lost since 9/11 in Iraq and Afghanistan."As part of military salute today, anyone with a military ID could purchase tickets at a special rate of three dollars off per ticket.
