Ft. Stewart has broken ground on living space for wounded soldiers.
The project is just the tip of a new construction iceberg at the massive Army base.
The barracks will provide a temporary home for soldiers getting long-term medical treatment.
Lt. Col. William Reitemeyer of the Warrior Transition Battalion says, the living space is the first step in creating a new medical campus focused on treating complex cases.
"We're currently in temporary facilities," Lt. Col. Reitemeyer says. "And this will provide us with a very consolidated campus, state of the art, probably the best that'll be here on Fort-Stewart for our soldiers."
Ft. Stewart also broke ground this week on more than a hundred new homes.
There's also a new brigade and battalion headquarters going up.
Overall, Ft. Stewart has 25 active construction contracts totaling $515 million.
That's welcome news for new services on post and for the area economy.
