The United States has no shortage of amazing cities, but which ones are the best for veterans? Navy Federal Credit Union decided to find out. In 2018, they commissioned a study that looked at veterans’ income, unemployment rates and proximity to VA hospitals and military bases. They coupled those results with quality-of-life measures such as cost of living, the local economy and access to health resources and colleges. The results are in! According to the study, the following cities scored the highest for both veterans and quality of life.
We compared locations across three broad categories: veteran and military culture and services, economic indicators — some veteran-specific and some not — and livability factors such as crime, health, school quality and traffic.
