South Dakota Veterans Home Stories

Rick PostProduction 800South Dakota storyteller, Rick Lingberg, visited the Michael J. Fitzmaurice State Veterans Home on July 23 to share his stories and to preserve some new ones. "Real history is a compilation of people's stories and experiences. However, only a very small amount of that is ever preserved and unfortunately lost for all of time," says Lingberg. "I think it's important that we do everything we can to preserve those stories even if it's just one story at a time," he added.
