A recent survey on WalletHub reveals that retirement for people in the military is usually harder than for civilians.

With the average officer retiree age hovering around 47 years old, or 43 years old for non-disability enlisted personnel, military retirees deal with their reintegration to civilian life, re-entering the job market, health issues and other hardships.

That's why WalletHub, a personal finance website, decided to identify the best and worst states that offer a comfortable military retirement. The report ranks all 50 states on 20 key metrics, which range from numbers of veterans per capita to number of VA health facilities per 10,000 veterans (you can read all of the metrics and methodology here). The states are ranked in three main areas: economic environment rank, quality of life rank and health care rank. To see the original post on WalletHub, go here.
