Nonprofit remodeling shuttered camp for traumatized veterans

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A Eugene-based nonprofit is working to get a camp up and running in a secluded area in the Coast Range to house dozens of veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Register-Guard reports ( Veterans Legacy Executive Director Mark Oberle says the group is hoping to fix up the seven-building complex and open it this summer.

The facility is the former site of a Lane County Sheriff’s Office inmate camp, which was shuttered for more than a decade before the nonprofit moved in in February.
