Insurify's 2020 Most Patriotic Cities Awards – FOX 28 Spokane

Click here to see the winners of the Most Patriotic Cities Awards for 2021.
This award goes to the most patriotic communities across America, from small villages to large metropoles, each with the greatest share of citizens who have risked their lives in service of our nation.
From the founding of the United States to the present, our nation has benefitted from the protection of millions of service members. Currently, 20.33 million veterans live in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, as do 1.34 million active service members, according to the Pew Research Center.
Since the Cold War era, the number of active service members has been in decline. And with the last draft occurring in 1973, enlistment and Americans with family ties to the military have diminished in some areas. Yet in others, whose military tradition has persisted, enlistment remains consistent or has grown.
In order to recognize those who have risked their lives in service of our country, the data scientists at Insurify , an insurance quotes comparison website, identified one city in each state with the highest percentage of active service members and veterans. Some of the cities on this list may surprise you, while others, located near military bases, may not. However, all deserve to be saluted for their contributions to the national defense.
Selection Process
To honor the most patriotic community in each state, the data science and research team at Insurify, a website that lets users compare auto insurance quotes, identified the communities with the highest share of military personnel. They referred to Insurify’s database of over 2 million car insurance applications. When applying for coverage, drivers indicate whether they or any other driver on their policy are an active service member or a veteran, as well as their city and state of legal residence. From this, Insurify’s data scientists found the community in each state with the greatest proportion of citizens with military service.
