Highest Concentration of Veterans in Hampton, Va., Census Bureau Says
http://www.census.gov/Press-Release/www/2003/cb03-83.html

U.S. cities near military bases have large concentrations of
military veterans among their populations, with Hampton, Va., having the highest, according to an analysis of Census 2000 data released today by the Census Bureau. Nearly 3-in-10 Hampton civilians once served in
uniform.

Among cities of 100,000 or more, Hampton had the edge with its proximity to the country's largest naval station at Norfolk and the headquarters of several military commands. Clarksville, Tenn., near Fort Campbell, Ky.; and Fayetteville, N.C., home of Fort Bragg, were Nos. 2 and 3, respectively. (See attached table.)

The report, Veterans: 2000, said places with the greatest
concentrations of Gulf War veterans matched the list of places with the
greatest concentration of veterans in general.
