Black Hills businesses and organizations do whatever they can to wrap their arms around military families. In fact, there’s so much support for military families in the Black Hills, that the South Dakota Ellsworth Development Authority (SDEDA) created a site for service members in the area to find local military discounts.
This website is called Black Hills Wire — a comprehensive website for the local military community to connect with businesses and events throughout the Black Hills of western South Dakota. As a resource to both Air Force and National Guard servicemen and women, along with their families, the Wire is filled with information and resources to get plugged into area organizations, use available discounts and meet other people in the area.
“The Black Hills Wire plays a critical role in supporting those who sacrifice so much for us,” said Scott Landguth, SDEDA Executive Director. “We want our military members and their families to enjoy their time here in South Dakota, and this is our way of contributing to their community relationships.” This website is updated regularly with new events and information as community support for military members at Ellsworth Air Force Base and Camp Rapid grows.
The Black Hills community welcomes you with open arms. We hope this feels like home for however long you are here.
