Youngstown recognized as a military friendly city

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The city of Youngstown made the top 50 military friendly cities for 2013.

Youngstown was ranked in the top 12.5 percent of 381 cities nationwide, according to a press release.  

G.I. Jobs said that the city is home to many jobs, schools and, veteran-owned businesses.

"Only one in eight metropolitan areas made this list," said Sean Collins, brand director for G.I. Jobs, which conducts this study and publishes the list.  "As a result of their pro-military and veteran policies and practices, these cities will certainly have an advantage in attracting this young, vibrant talent as they choose where to raise their families after leaving the military."
