YORKTOWN, Va. - An expanded outdoor recreational facility for military veterans and their families is being unveiled this week.

A grand opening is set for Friday at Cheatham Annex, part of the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station.

Among the new amenities are 16 cottages, 50 recreation vehicle hook-up sites and 20 tent campsites. Six of the new cottages have two bedrooms and 10 are three-bedroom units.

The Navy says the project cost $6.5 million and took a year-and-a-half to complete.
