Subdivision for veterans opens in Tampa Bay area

Palmetto, FL (AP) -- The Tampa Bay area is now home to a new subdivision created for veterans, law enforcement officers and others.


The Veterans Village in Palmetto boasts homes that can be customized for disabled residents. It offers 100 percent financing and a $4,000 discount for veterans, as well as help getting a mortgage through the Department of Veterans Affairs and other government grants.


The camaraderie of a veterans community appeals to retired Army Sgt. 1st Class Archie Sanders. He says civilians don't understand the problems and issues veterans face.


He added, "Come here and you'll have a buddy beside you who can pick you up."


A grand opening for the subdivision was held over the weekend.
