~ My family is interwoven with Veterans, Current Service Members and Military Civilian Personnel, so this article stood out to me. BTW most of whom do not live in these cities ;)Enjoy! ~
24/7 Wall St. reviewed the number of active duty men and women, in addition to their dependents, living on bases in major metropolitan areas across the country to determine America’s top military cities. Metro areas were ranked on the number of military personnel and known dependents as a percent of the total metro area population. The dependent figures reflect the number of known dependents affiliated with active duty servicemen and women, whether or not they live on-base. Many of the cities with relatively large military populations are also home larger-than-typical shares of veterans.
Fort Drum, the backdrop for the 2019 defense budget signing, is the largest military base in the northeastern United States.
