BIT appreciates the efforts of the service members in our organization, community and the State of South Dakota as a whole. We are aware of the challenges faced by service men and women and their families. The month of April has been designated as the Month of the Military Child, a time to recognize and honor military children for their many sacrifices and struggles, as well as their countless contributions to our nation. On April 15th, BIT employees publically demonstrated their appreciation for the sacrifices and successes made by our service members - past and present. By wearing purple, employees of BIT displayed their support for the children in military families who often endure challenges before, during and after deployment of their loved ones.
