ISLANDIA - Six Long Island veterans became homeowners today in what's being called the nation's first veterans-only housing development.

The homes at Veteran's Way in Islandia were offered for half their market value at $199,000, thanks to Long Island Builders Development Corporation, donations and affordable mortgages.

Families spent the afternoon surveying the project, all while construction crews hammered away. Once the structures are complete, donated appliances will be installed. Then the families will move in.

Builders expect the homes to be finished in November.
