Best Cities For Veterans To Live And Work

For most active-duty military personnel, where to call home is a decision largely left up to their branch of service. Though troops' desires about where they'd like to be based are taken into account, the needs of the mission are paramount in determining where military employees are based.

When they decide to separate, for many veterans it will be first time they have to seriously consider where they'd like to live and work. That can be a daunting process, especially if they are looking for a city where costs are relatively low, and still offers plenty of employment opportunities.

With these considerations in mind as well as a dozen other criteria, including climate, number of veteran-owned businesses and military pension taxes, USAA and recently compiled a list of the 10 Best Places for Military Retirement, presented in the gallery below. The list has been updated to include more current unemployment rates for each city, based on June data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
