Beaufort Named Most Patriotic City in South Carolina
Beaufort as just named the Most Patriotic City in South Carolina by the folks at Insurify.com, the popular insurance comparison shopping website. Being the location of a few military bases and thousands of Veterans and retirees, it absolutely isn't a surprise that Beaufort SC won the accolade again.
Every spring, Insurify compiles its data for the list and this makes the 3rd straight year that beautiful Beaufort SC has won and represented South Carolina to the other 49 states.
"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," Insurify said.
Insurify puts it’s yearly list together based on a database of nearly 2 million car insurance applications. When applying for their coverages, car owners are asked to indicate whether they or any other driver on their policy are an active service member or a veteran.
Using the information they gathered, their researchers are able to determine which communities in each state had the most citizens with military service by population, then narrowed it down to the one with the most. According to Insurify, the military personnel and veterans in these communities have made a commitment to our nation’s defense; for that reason, they’ve earned the title of Most Patriotic Cities in America.
Beaufort is as big a military town as any you'll ever see. Beaufort is home to Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot, the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort and a U.S. Naval Hospital with thousands passing through each year.
The most patriotic cities in our surrounding states are Hinesville, GA, Jacksonville, NC and Atlantic Beach, FL.
