Just in Time For Memorial Day, a New Veterans Facility in Southern Utah

It's the end of an era for military veterans in Utah's nine southernmost counties.

Just in time for Memorial Day, officals in southern Utah have opened a new veterans' home, to served elderly and injured former members of the armed forces.

The new facility was funded with state and federal tax dollars -- along with $300,000 generated through a St. George fundraising campaign.

The new facility is located in the small town of Ivins -- just outside St. George -- which donated ten acres for its construction.

Until now, southern Utah veterans needing services have had to make the long drive to the Wasatch Front.
