Richmond, Glen Allen, VA is One of the Best Places for Retired Military to Live

Joseph Coupal - Monday, September 19, 2016

Veteran’s Day is fast approaching. There was an interesting study about the best places in the U.S. for military retirees to start a second career. Since most veterans retire from service in their 30′s or 40′s, they have plenty of time to start a new professional chapter in their lives.

So what are the best places to enter the civilian job sector? Best Places partnered with USAA and Military.com (the largest military and veteran membership organization). The study looked at factors such as affordability, unemployment rate, prevalence of military skill related jobs, and number of veteran-owned businesses. But it doesn’t stop there.

Also considered was the number of federal government jobs, the volume of DoD contracts, the number of small businesses, the proximity of military installations and amenities, presence of VA hospitals, military pension taxation, presence of colleges and universities, sales tax, climate, and crime rate.

Here’s the overall top 10:

  1. Oklahoma City, OK
  2. Norfolk, VA
  3. Richmond, VA
  4. Austin, TX
  5. San Antonio, TX
  6. Madison, WI
  7. Philadelphia, PA
  8. Raleigh, NC
  9. Omaha, NE
  10. Manchester, NH
