(Before It's News)

HOT SPRINGS, S.D. – The Michael J. Fitzmaurice State Veteran Home welcomed U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem on Nov 1. Noem had yet to see the facility since the new building was finished.

Noem actively checks how facilities in South Dakota function, and overall, Noem was pleased with how the Veteran Home serves residents.

“When I was in the state legislature, we talked about having a facility like this, so to see it completed is wonderful. This is an amazing gift to South Dakota and to this community but also to our veterans. So I’m hopeful that it will be filled up soon and utilized, and this really is a big family. So it’s a wonderful place for our veterans to come and spend their last few years together.”

The Veterans Home can house up to 100 veterans. The facility is complete with a pharmacy, barber shop, and church.

Noem ended her day by stopping by Wind Cave National Park to help the bison be recognized as the national mammal.
