Dignitaries from state and local government, and the military, will officially open the new Radcliff Veterans Center on July 21.
The center is a bright, comfortable skilled nursing facility that has the feeling of a lodge. It’s located on 200 peaceful acres donated by Fort Knox.
The first residents began arriving in May. One of residents of the first "household" of 10 veterans is William Wester.
When you get to Wester’s room, it’s clear that this slim man with a twinkle in his eye is looking toward the future, beyond his current 101 years.
"I’m going on 102," he said.
