My name is Orlando Morrison Sr., and I have served as a Veterans Service Officer (VSO) for the Rosebud Sioux Tribe since July, 1995. One of my duties include arranging and transporting veterans to their respective appointments to the nearest VAMC which is located in Hot Springs, South Dakota, a two and a half (2 1/2) hour drive from Rosebud which makes it difficult for many of our veterans who do not own a vehicle or cannot afford to drive that distance.
We currently have a van we use for this but it has an excessive amount of miles and the maintenance is becoming more frequent and expensive. of a new vehicle is too costly for our program so we are looking towards an organization such as the Wounded Warriors to assist us on this very important issue. We look forward to working with you and thank you very much for this opportunity.
