By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 11/01/2012 08:36 AM
     PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard is urging South Dakota businesses and government agencies to hire military veterans.
 
     The governor says businesses with job openings should consider hiring veterans because they make excellent employees.
 
     State Labor Secretary Pam Roberts says 18 Labor Department offices across South Dakota have veterans' employment representatives who help veterans enter the civilian workforce.
 
     In a proclamation declaring November as a month to hire veterans first, the governor notes that more than 800 South Dakota veterans were discharged from the armed services from July 2011 to June 2012.
