With Memorial Day right around the corner and May being National Military Appreciation Month, WalletHub decided to honor the military community by identifying the Best & Worst States for Military Retirees. We did so by comparing the 50 states as well as the District of Columbia in terms of 18 key metrics – ranging from taxes on military benefits to veteran job opportunities – which collectively speak to the economic environment, health care services and overall quality of life in each area.
