Lt. Gov. Ramsey applauds authorization of veterans center
(Nashville) – Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey today announced that the State Building Commission has approved money to fully fund the planning of a community living center for veterans in Montgomery County. Lt. Governor Ramsey, who chairs the Commission, described the Montgomery County Veterans Community Living Center as a way to give back to those who fought for our nation.
“The service of our veterans make our way of life possible,” said Lt. Governor Ramsey. “It is very important for us to make sure adequate facilities are available to care for our elderly veterans in their golden years.”
“Many of our country’s servicemen pass through Fort Campbell at some point in their career. They grow to love the state and many return here to retire. This facility is one way we can thank them for their service.”
The facility will be a 108-bed intermediate and skilled care nursing home/community center for the veterans of Tennessee. Today’s authorization allows planning for the project to commence and for a designer to be selected. The multi-million dollar project will be paid for by state, federal and local funds.
