One Response to Top 10 Cities for Veterans

  1. Yeah I am from San Angelo. Even though this is a small city but no doubt its a good city to live. Its my birthplace and I have completed my graduation from Angelo State University. So I am living in this city for almost 26 years. I can say this is one of the pacific city within USA. There are almost zero crime and simple but very aesthetic looking city it is.

    However I red the article and it is nice one. I want to give thanks to the author for including my favorite city to the article..

    thanks~
