     PIERRE, S.D. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says people should take time this month to recognize the sacrifices and successes of those who have served in the U.S. military.
 
     May is National Military Appreciation Month.

     Maj. Gen. Timothy Reisch (RYSH), Adjutant General of the South Dakota National Guard, says May is dedicated to all military men and women and their families. He says the month provides an opportunity to educate young people about the historical importance of the armed forces.
