Best cities for veterans to live in America

Posted: Updated:

The care of our nation's veterans has been a big concern over the last few years across the country. 

A recent WalletHub.com study evaluated the 100 largest U.S. cities, using 17 different considerations, to find the places most suitable for veterans to live.

Those considerations included the cities with the highest percentage of military skill related jobs. Topping the list in that category were Baltimore, Maryland, Madison, Wisconsin, and number one, Freemont, California.

Analysts also considered the cities that had the lowest unemployment rate. Veterans had more jobs in Seattle, Washington, Columbus, Ohio, and the city that employs the most vets, Austin, Texas.

The study also revealed the cities with the highest veteran income growth.  The top three included, Boise, Idaho, Newark, New Jersey, and the city paying the most bucks to veterans, Miami, Florida.
 
Overall, the top five best cities for veterans to live in are, Plano, Texas, Raleigh, North Carolina, Virginia Beach, Virginia, Colorado Springs, Colorado, and the best city for Vets to live, Austin, Texas.

Tucson did not turn out to be a very good base for veterans, rated number 61 out of 100 cities considered the best places for veterans to take up residence.
