LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Commonwealth of Kentucky is home to well more than 300,000 veterans, a good number of those in the Louisville area.
They've been waiting more than a decade for a new VA hospital and expected this would be the year they would get it after the Department of Veterans Affairs purchased land on Brownsboro Road nearly five years ago for the project. But they won't get it this decade, since no construction has even begun.
