SD American legion supporting healthcare workers who provide care for ‘Brothers in Arms’

SOUTH DAKOTA, — Members of the South Dakota American Legion usually will sit at the bedsides of veterans who don’t have family to be by them when they pass.

And now with the COVID-19 pandemic, The American Legion has had to change up their approach and Friday they wanted to say thank you to the men and woman who treat their Brothers in Arms.

They stood at the entrance of Fort Meade and waved and held signs up for all the medical workers to see.

“We’re thanking all of the caregivers for the work they do,” said Ron Root, the Post 22 Legion Riders Road Captain. “We are all vets so we know that they really work hard to keep everything going and we just want them to know we appreciate them.”

The American Legion is committed to helping others and wanted to show their thanks to all of the medical professionals at Fort Meade and across the country.
