TEXAS - San Antonio and Austin are the No. 1 and No. 2 destination for military retirees, according to a study commissioned by USAA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

"Best Places for Veterans" identifies ten U.S. metros in three categories: Starting Out, Mid-Career and Military Retirement.

The Military Retirement category looks at metros that offer more opportunities to maximize military retiree benefits and offer employment that aligns with military skills.

The Starting Out category measures local unemployment rates, the presence of higher education facilities, in order to identify cities where military veterans might have the best chance to get jobs. Austin also ranked No. 2 using that measurement, while College Station ranked No. 9.

The third study ranking looked at Mid-Career measurements such as job growth in the top local industries that employ veterans, veteran wage growth and certification/license transfers.

Houston ranked No. 1 in that category. San Antonio was No. 2. Austin ranked No. 5 and Fort Worth was No. 9.
