CHEYENNE – Lawmakers have named Buffalo as the site for a potential subsidized long-term treatment facility for veterans in Wyoming. The home of the Veterans’ Home of Wyoming beat out Sheridan and Casper for the potential new facility after hours of debate Tuesday.

Wyoming is the only state without a VA skilled nursing facility, which provides long-term care to veterans, their spouses and Gold Star families, and is partially subsidized by the VA. The sites are built through a VA grant program, which pays for 65 percent of the cost of construction.
