ISLANDIA - A ground-breaking ceremony was held today in Islandia for what will become a housing complex for veterans.

Veterans Way will be the nation's first subdivision developed exclusively for veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Islandia complex will feature six homes offered at reduced costs.

Builders want the project completed by Veterans Day, but there's still a lot of work to be done. More funding is also needed.

Veterans can apply for the housing through June.
