Here's a sad fact to read: New York is ranked one of the worst states in the country for military retirees.

Wallethub compared the 50 states across 27 key indicators of retirement-friendliness toward veterans. They set ranges from job opportunities for veterans to housing affordability to quality of VA hospitals. How did New York do? Not that great honestly.

Military Retirement in New York:
51st - Veterans per Capita
31st - % of Homeless Veterans
32nd - Veteran Job Opportunities
48th - Housing Affordability
51st - % of Veteran-Owned Businesses
38th -  Number of VA Benefits-Administration Facilities per Number of Veterans"

Retirement for military retirees who must deal with the trials of reassimilation into civilian life isn't always easy. How can we improve this right here in New York?
