Saranac Lake as soldiers' haven

Listen to this story
A broad-based coalition of community leaders and veteran advocates are working to bring a first-of-its-kind retreat and reintegration facility for veterans, active military personnel and their families to Saranac Lake. Patriot Hills at Saranac Lake involves construction of a $30 million hotel and conference center that would host a wide range of support programs, counseling and services for military personnel and their families from across the Northeast. While it still has plenty of hurdles to overcome, organizers say the project would build on Saranac Lake's history as a pioneering health resort by making the village a center for veteran healing. As Chris Knight reports, the project could also breathe new life into the local economy.
