A few months back we asked current and former military personnel where in the US they most enjoyed being stationed, and why. And these were their picks for the “Best Military Towns in America” -- some truly beautiful parts of the country. (We also plied them for their military packing pro-tips. Thanks guys!)
This time, though, we wanted to know where they absolutely HATED being sent. The towns where feral cats circled the moving van when they pulled in. Or towns that led otherwise supportive military spouses to casually be, like, “Heeeey, just an idea here, but maaaaaaybe -- now hear me out -- maybe we do the long distance thing until your next assignment,” when they got their orders.
They say there are two kinds of military towns: those that come ready-made and those you "make the most of." After taking into consideration weather, morale, base amenities, stuff to do, and accessibility to major cities, it seems that some of our military’s most heroic acts of service might not be fighting battles abroad, but bravely conquering these 10 towns at home.
