Where Do Veterans Live?

Okay, so I probably should have posted this one a little closer to Veterans’ Day, but alas, so many posts, so little time. Actually, I fell behind in some of my reading and just recently ran across the graphic that reported these number.  So, here are the top ten (and bottom ten) states by the estimated number of the veterans living within them (based on 2014 numbers).

1.  California (1,802)

4.  Pennsylvania (917)
5.  New York (863)
6.  Ohio (848)
7. Virginia (783)
8.  North Carolina (774)
9.  Georgia (752)
10.  Illinois (706)

Least Veterans (in thousands)
1.  District of Columbia (29)
2.  Vermont (48)
