10 "Best Places" for Military Families to Retire?

Military.com examined 379 major U.S. metropolitan areas to identify the 10 best places for service members to retire.

There were approximately 2 million military retirees as of 2009. The average of retirement age for enlisted service members is 42 and 46 for officers. Factors that make a retirement locale appealing include:
· Proximity to a military base with good amenities and a VA hospital.
· How the state taxes a military pension.
· Educational opportunities and other quality-of-life issues.

Military.com selected these 10 cities as most attractive:

1. Waco, Texas
2. Oklahoma City, Okla.
3. Austin, Texas
4. College Station, Texas
5. Harrisburg, Pa.
6. San Angelo, Texas
7. Madison, Wis.
8. Pittsburgh
9. New Orleans
10. Syracuse, N.Y.
