If you’re retiring from the military this year, you might want to consider moving to Virginia. 

That’s according to a new report from WalletHub, which found the best – and worst – states for military retirees, based on their economic environment, quality of life and health care. Virginia was at the top of the list. 

For its report, WalletHub compared all 50 U.S. states – including Washington, D.C. – based on 29 metrics.

For example, Alaska was found to have the most veterans per capita, while New York was found to have the fewest veterans per capita, according to the report. 

But New York was also found to have the most VA health facilities per number of veterans, while Rhode Island was found to have the fewest.
