Oklahoma City Ranked #11 as a Top City for Transitioning Veterans

Oklahoma City’s love and support for military service members and veterans was recently recognized by the Navy Federal Credit Union (NFCU). Oklahoma City, OK, ranked #11 on NFCU’s annual 2020 Best Cities After Service. This list details the top cities around the country for veterans and service members transitioning from active duty to civilian life.

The comprehensive list provides an overview of America’s top cities and tallies what surveyed veterans reported as most important to them when choosing a city to call home. Top contenders were a strong community of other veterans, low crime rates, a low cost of living and easily-accessible outdoor activities.

Not only does Oklahoma City offer a higher income level for local veterans in general, it is home to a significant number of veteran-owned businesses. OKC also received high scores for its availability of healthcare resources, low crime rate and plenty of recreational activities.

Approximately 250,000 military members transition out of the service and into civilian life each year, according to the Navy Federal Credit Union.

ODVA is proud to serve veterans transitioning from active duty into civilian life with resources and services in Oklahoma City and throughout the state. To learn more about what the State of Oklahoma has to offer veterans, including assistance with benefit claims and healthcare, visit
