Michigan officials have broken ground for a new veterans home at the site of a former military housing complex in suburban Detroit.
The Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency said despite Monday's groundbreaking for the Southeast Michigan Veterans Home , construction isn't expected to begin until the spring at the 103-acre site known as Sebille Manor in Macomb County's Chesterfield Township. Completion is forecast for the fall of 2021.
The agency says that when completed, the facility will be able to serve 128 veterans in a modern, home-like setting providing state-of-the-art care.
The property formerly was used for housing supporting an Army garrison. It's located near Selfridge Air National Guard Base.
