Military City, USA

San Antonio is a community that truly appreciates our military and the sacrifices made every day by those who serve our country in the armed forces and their families. Our city is commonly referred to as "Military City USA," and we are proud of that name and strive every day to live up to the responsibility of making sure that those who sacrifice so much every day are treated well in our home town.

San Antonio is also a place that many military love to retire in, or move to after their service. We boast the second highest number of retired military in our area, only behind Washington D.C. You will find many companies who prefer to hire veterans or military family members.
