Shamefully, Detroit Ranks Last on ‘Best Cities for Veterans’ List
Researching employment opportunities, comparing economy, health and quality of life aspects, WalletHub ranked Detroit at #100 on a list of '2017's Best and Worst Places for Veterans To Live.'
The city that wants you to "buy American" does not support those who have served this great nation.
"WalletHub’s analysts compared the 100 largest U.S. cities across 17 key indicators of livability, affordability and veteran-friendliness. They range from share of military skill-related jobs to veteran income growth to availability of VA health facilities."
On a ranking from 1 to 100, with 1 being the best, Detroit was at in 89th place in the 'Jobs' category, 93rd in 'Economy,' next to last in 'Quality of Life,' and 95th in 'Health' resulting in the dishonor of the worst major city for Veterans to live in 2017.
