Fundraising nears completion for new $3.6M veterans post

Posted: Updated:

WAVERLY, Iowa (AP) -- Fundraising is nearing a finish for the new $3.6 million Waverly Area Veterans Post that's currently under construction.
   
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that only about $280,000 is needed for the 17,300-square-foot facility. It will serve as a home for multiple veterans organizations, including the Waverly Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion.
   
Plans for the two-level facility include Internet access and online video service for active service members' families to communicate with them. Veterans will also be able to apply for benefits, jobs, educational opportunities and other services at the post.
   
Damage to multiple existing veterans posts in a 2008 flood afforded officials an opportunity to explore the idea of a new post that could be shared by several veterans organizations.
