South Dakota National Guard Museum

As members of today’s Dakota Guard, we have the responsibility and obligation to preserve this fine heritage for our families, the citizens of our state and ourselves. To meet this obligation, the South Dakota National Guard Museum was established to provide a repository for memorabilia and historical documents pertaining to the South Dakota National Guard.
