We’re No. 9!

Gazette staff June 3rd, 2014

A recent survey by a website that few have ever heard of determined that living conditions in Oklahoma for veterans are could be better but also could be far worse.

Wallethub.com, a social networking site for finance, determined that Okie veterans fare far better than most of the country, ranking it ninth in quality of life for military retirees.

The study looked at economic factors such as housing costs, job opportunities and health care.

According to a survey by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, approximately 340,395 veterans lived in Oklahoma in 2013, and we’re doing pretty right by them.

The study cited access to the state’s healthcare facilities and two major military bases, as well as the chance to apply for housing and financial assistance, as perks.

As a bonus, vets receive free admission to all of our state-run parks and attractions with proof of military service.

So while the rest of the country seems to want to forget these brave men and women who serve, Oklahoma strives to treat them like the honored citizens they are.
