San Jose Mercury News: Alameda: Navy turns over land for veterans clinic, national cemetery, November 5, 2014


Efforts to build a national cemetery and an outpatient clinic to serve local veterans at the former Alameda Naval Air Station reached a milestone Monday, when the U.S. Navy transferred 624 acres for the $210 million project to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The site, which supporters say will eventually become a "one-stop shop" for veterans, will also include a regional VA benefits office, as well as wildlife refuge to protect the endangered California least tern as it migrates along the California coast.
