7. Wisconsin


The state of Wisconsin provides top-notch public education at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, as well as a premier private (Jesuit) education at Marquette University in Milwaukee.

If neither one suits your fancy, the University of Wisconsin system has universities located in nearly every major city in the state which offer affordable degrees and growing economies for veterans seeking a job.

One of the top-rated veteran’s centers is located in Madison as well. Couple that with a low cost of living and a great school system, and you have a great location for veterans and their families.
