KERNERSVILLE, N.C. - A new resource for veterans is coming to the Triad.

The State Department of Military and Veterans Affairs broke ground this morning on a new state veterans home in Kernersville.

The facility at the VA hospital complex across from Novant Health will be able to house 120 veterans, all in private rooms with nurses on site.

It'll create about 200 jobs in the area.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs contributed about half the funding for the more than $50 million project.
