Oregon Ranks Last Among States For Military Retirees

Robert Neff/Fifth World Art

Oregon got a significant place on one of those lists that rank all the states.  Unfortunately, the place was last: WalletHub ranked Oregon 50th of the 50 states in "Best & Worst States for Military Retirees."

If you want nearby comparisons, California ranked 21st and Washington got 28th.  So what makes Oregon a bad place for veterans to retire?  We put that question and a few others to Jill Gonzalez, an analyst at WalletHub.
