Welcome! When it’s time to leave the military and enter life after service, it can be difficult to choose where you’re going to start civilian life. It’s best to look for a city that welcomes veterans and has plenty of career opportunities and an affordable cost of living.

Fayetteville, North Carolina, tops the list as one of the best cities in the country for former servicemembers. Because Fayetteville is the nation’s first Military Sanctuary Community, veterans can have peace of mind knowing that they’ll always be welcome there.

For veterans interested in a military-friendly community with a low cost of living, San Angelo, Texas, may be the place to call home. San Angelo has an active veteran population, and Forbes has listed this city as one of the Best Places for Businesses and Careers.
