Detroit is the worst city for veterans, according to study

Detroit was named 2018's worst city for veterans to live in by a WalletHub study. 

The study compared the largest 100 U.S. cities across key indicators of livability, affordability and veteran-friendliness. The indicators range from military-related skill jobs to availability of VA health facilities.

Detroit has a particularly high veteran unemployment rate and percentage of veterans in poverty, according to the study.

The study says the best cities for veterans to live in are Austin, Texas; Scottsdale, Arizona and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
