FROM:            Larry Zimmerman, Secretary
SUBJECT:      Military Funeral Honors Stipend Reimbursement Request

During the 2015 South Dakota Legislative Session, legislators were successful in securing funding to
reimburse congressionally chartered veterans service organizations for their services in conducting
military funeral honors.

Reimbursement will be available for honors conducted after July 1, 2015.

Reimbursement will be paid quarterly, but documentation may be submitted periodically after
services were performed. Documentation should be submitted to the South Dakota Department of
Veterans Affairs, 425 E. Capitol, Pierre, SD 57501.

Attached is a copy of the reimbursement request form that we will be using.  We will have a brief
description of this program on our website (under state benefits) and will attach the form so that it is
readily available for all to access.
