SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A Janklow family friend who served three decades in the South Dakota National Guard says the funeral services for former South Dakota Gov. Bill Janklow will have a military component.
Les Cummings says a military honor guard will be present as Janklow's body lies in state at the Capitol Rotunda in Pierre on
Tuesday morning, and members of Marine Corps League chapters from Sioux Falls and Pierre will assist in both cities.
Janklow died Thursday at age 72 after a months-long fight with brain cancer. The former governor served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1956 through 1959.
A Tuesday afternoon procession will take Janklow's body from Pierre to Sioux Falls, where his funeral is set for Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.
