The study was commissioned by USAA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes.
They were the only two Texas cities to make the list, which also included Tuscaloosa, Ala.; Lynchburg, Va.; Ann Arbor, Mich.; St. Louis, Mo.; Syracuse, N.Y.; Greenville, N.C.; Salt Lake City, Ut.; and Columbia, S.C.

“Higher education is one avenue that separating service members are encouraged to consider through the military’s Transition Assistance Program, and early planning can help them succeed,” said Eric Engquist, an assistant vice president at USAA and Army veteran.

Engquist said this list, along with USAA’s other transition resources such as the military separation checklist and assessment tool, can help separating service members map out their financial plan well in advance of transition.
