BOISE - The Department of Veterans Affairs has purchased more than 8 acres of land in Buhl from a private owner to establish a new national veterans cemetery.
It will be the first VA national cemetery in Idaho.
The agency hopes the new site will help reach veterans in rural parts of the state.
The cemetery will serve more than 14,000 veterans, their spouses and eligible family members in the Twin Falls area.
