(KAIT) -It’s not exactly the “golden years” for some people.
Some may face new issues after retirement, particularly those who have served our country bravely.
The average officer is only 45 years old when he or she retires from the military.
Many who reenter the job market face challenges during the transition, while others may struggle with problems like post-traumatic stress disorder, disability, or homelessness.
A recent study by WalletHub tackled the issue of how well each state cares for their veterans.
The study compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia based on their ability to provide a comfortable military retirement.
Their analysis used data from 29 key metrics, ranging from veterans per capita to VA health facilities to job opportunities for veterans.
Arkansas ranked 20, while Missouri ranked 33.
