Custer City Armory

Custer City, SD, October 23, 2018– At 2 p.m. Monday, November 12th, the Custer School District will present an hour-long Veterans Day program in the Custer City Armory. For 24 years the program has been sponsored by the American Legion and completely run by students to honor area veterans. It consists of Civil Air Patrol flag posting, patriotic music performed by all classes, the band and the choir, POW/MIA ceremony, a guest speaker, remembrance of veterans deceased over the past year, individual recognition of each veteran in attendance by Custer Cub Scouts and the 6th Grade Class, and Civil Air Patrol flag retirement. This year’s guest speaker will be Larry Zimmerman, Secretary of the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs. Secretary Zimmerman, along with school and local officials, will be available for interview following the program.
This is a large community event involving the entire school district. It shows small town America at its patriotic best. Because it is being conducted this year 1 day following Veterans Day (due to the 4-day school week), it offers all a great opportunity to extend their Veterans Day activities.
American Legion, For God and Country
