By Chamber Staff / Inside OKC / November 12, 2018

Happy Veteran’s Day! Did you know that about 250,000 military members transition out of service every year? There can be a lot of perks to retirement, but retired veterans in Oklahoma City have something to be especially happy about: Not only was Oklahoma City recently ranked among the top 5 cities for veteran homebuyers, but now a study conducted by Navy Federal Credit Union found that Oklahoma City is the best city for retired vets.

“The ranking was made by considering 11 metrics of veteran success and wellness, including veteran’s income, unemployment rates, proximity to VA hospitals and military bases, and then coupling it with a suite of quality of life measures, which include factors like affordability, the local economy, access to health resources, colleges and the arts, and more…Oklahoma City earns its top ranking with some of the strongest scores for both veteran-specific metrics and for overall quality of life measures…OKC scored particularly well in the categories of high incomes and income growth for veterans, low unemployment among veterans and the number of veteran-owned businesses.”
