One of the most decorated battleships of WWII, the USS South Dakota Battleship Memorial is a great tribute to those who fought so bravely to protect our freedoms. The memorial is laid out in a manner that gives you a feel of the size of the ship. Along the grounds are various markers for the battles in which the USS SD participated. On our particular visit, they had just finished up with a tribute to the livingWWII sailors who were on the ship and it was great to hear their stories first hand. The inside of the memorial featurs donated photos, uniforms, etc. They are oddly laid out but that does not diminish the overall impact of the memorial. If in Sioux Falls and you are interested in history or the Navy, take an hour or so and visit the memorial, learn a few things and pay your respects.
