A new national study says metro Augusta is one of the best communities for transitioning service members.

More than 150 active-duty service members transition out of the military at Fort Gordon each month. Based on exit surveys, roughly two-thirds of them say they would like to make their home in the Augusta metro area.

A newly released national study lends credence to their decision.

Augusta has been named America’s 12th best city for people transitioning from active-duty service, according to a Navy Federal Credit Union-funded study assisted by the Sperling’s Best Places research company and Operation Homefront, a veterans-advocacy nonprofit.
