April 21, 2013
South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has declared April as "Month of the Military Child." The designation is meant to encourage support for Operation: Military Kids, youth programs for Guard, Reserve and active-military families, and other organizations established to provide local support to military children and their families. Support from Wells Fargo was key in securing funding for military youth programming in South Dakota, and Aberdeen Mayor Mike Levsen did his part by declaring April 12 as a special day for military kids.

Tiffany Elementary School student and a ¿military kid¿; Robert Cady of Wells Fargo; and Luke Bunke, a former South Dakota Army National Guard member and father of Jordan.
