Insurify's data scientists analyzed their database of over four million car insurance applications to identify the city in each state, with the highest proportion of current and former members of the armed forces. "Serving 80,000+ active duty members and 130,000 veterans, MAC has the integral role of being the liason between Fayetteville and Ft. Bragg," said Franco K. Webb, MSG-ret., chairman of the Chamber's Military Affairs Council. As of 2020, there were 1.3 million active-duty military personnel in the United States, according to the Council on Foreign Relations. To honor those who have risked their lives in service for our country, the research team at Insurify crunched the numbers to find the most patriotic cities across the nation. These cities are home to the greatest share of active service members and veterans in their respective states, who have gone above and beyond in dedication to our nation's ideals. "This award seeks to honor the military personnel whose commitment to the safety of their communities is unparalleled," said Snejina Zacharia, CEO of Insurify. "We are indebted to the service and dedication demonstrated by these selfless citizens." According to Newsmax Magazine, "Fayetteville may be one of the most patriotic communities in America. It's known as the unofficial home of Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base (now Pope Army Airfield). It's also the seat of Cumberland County, dubbed "World's First Sanctuary for Soldiers" to show the country that soldiers and their families can feel safe, secure, and cared for here." As the bridge between the business community and Fayetteville's military population, MAC creates multiple opportunities to connect and engage, Webb explained. "Doing business, learning Ft. Bragg or Fayetteville history, recreation, or what Fayetteville has to offer, MAC is there to support the mission, always." WE FIND A WAY, WE CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER, WE PROTECT THE WORLD, WE ALWAYS GO FURTHER! We are the CAN DO CAROLINA community!
