Patriotic State

This weekend is about getting outdoors, barbecuing and spending time with family and friends, but most importantly, we get together to Honor our Independence as Americans. According to the personal-finance website WalletHub, they released its list of 2016’s Most Patriotic States. Surprisingly, Alaska has the highest number of veterans per 1,000 residents, which is two times higher than in New York. Georgia has the highest percentage of residents who enlisted in the military (non-prior service). Minnesota has the highest percentage of residents who voted in the 2012 presidential election, and Utah has the highest volunteer rate. However, which state is the most patriotic? Virginia is, followed by Alaska.
