Forbes: You might not think of Pittsburgh, PA as the most promising place for a veteran to live after leaving the service. The rust belt city isn’t known for having a big military base or a major defense contractor. But it has other attributes that make it an attractive spot for vets. The metro area has a growing population of nearly 2.4 million, but median home prices have stayed at an impressively affordable $113,500. Median rent for a two-bedroom dwelling is just $800. While the city’s unemployment rate of 5.9% is on par with the national average, a number of Pittsburgh employers make hiring vets a priority, including Alcoa, Heinz, FedEx (its ground service division is based in Pittsburgh), PNC Bank and managed health care giant Wellpoint. There are also three well-regarded universities, Carnegie Mellon, Duquesne and University of Pittsburgh and an art school, the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
These advantages land Pittsburgh in the No. 1 spot on a new list of best places for veterans to live, released today in anticipation of Veterans Day by USAA, a San Antonio financial services company that caters to members of the military, veterans and their families.
