The ten states with the highest Active Duty military populations are:
- California (163,034),
- Virginia (129,948),
- Texas (129,440),
- North Carolina (110,286),
- Georgia (75,058),
- Washington (61,326),
- Florida (59,135),
- Hawaii (46,394),
- Kentucky (42,001), and
- South Carolina (37,268).
This is just the Active Duty military-person. There are more family members then military personnel so for the most part you can at least double each number to get a picture of how many military & family members live in your state.
