LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada veterans now have a cyberspace network to help them find jobs, educational programs and access health care benefits.

The Green Zone Initiative launched on Wednesday in Las Vegas is named after the safe haven for soldiers inside Baghdad during the Iraq War.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the website was 18 months in the making. The $250,000 price tag was paid for from sales of Nevada's specialty license plates honoring veterans.

Nevada Adjutant Gen. Bill Burks says the website also will assist veterans in finding help to deal with the physical wounds of war as well as the invisible scars of post-traumatic stress.
