SDPB's goal with "Active Duty" is to inform the citizens of South Dakota about the missions our friends and neighbors, sons and daughters, husbands and wives are undertaking. We hope you'll establish a personal connection with the servicemen and women serving in the military and have a greater appreciation for the work that they do.
