USAA lists top cities for military retirees to start a second career

This coming Veterans Day, we will take a moment to honor those who have served in the armed forces. But sadly, many of our military vets are suffering in this economy. Veterans who had long military careers often struggle to transition to jobs in the civilian workforce.

This week, USAA (United Services Automobile Association) released a list of the top 10 cities in the U.S. for military retirees to start a second career. Top of the list is Oklahoma City, OK. Other cities on the list:

1. Oklahoma City, OK
2. Norfolk, VA
3. Richmond, VA
4. Austin, TX
5. San Antonio, TX
6. Madison, WI
7. Philadelphia, PA
8. Raleigh, NC
9. Omaha, NE
10. Manchester, NH

June Walbert of USAA talks with Chrstine Romans about the list and the difficulties retired service members face in trying to find work in the civilian world.
