Hinesville wins most patriotic city in Georgia award
patriotic stock

A national insurance company has named Hinesville the state's most patriotic city, based on the number of active or retired military who reside here. 

To recognize those who have served our country, the data scientists at Insurify set out to identify the most patriotic communities in each state, the company said.

According to its data, these communities are home to the highest percentage of individuals who are currently serving in the military or identify themselves as veterans. Some may not surprise you, the company said, towns located outside of military bases naturally have a higher representation of current and former service members, while others represent pockets of patriotism that may be overlooked. 

However, the company said all deserve to be saluted for their contributions to the national defense.

To determine the most patriotic community in each state, Insurify analyzed over 900,000 completed auto insurance applications that indicated whether any individual named on the policy was a current or former service member. 

A filter was then applied to isolate communities with over 150 driver applicants, the company said. The resulting data set was analyzed to determine the percentage of local residents who identify as current military or veteran, and then the top-ranking city in each state was identified

In the eyes of the Insurify team, it is these communities that deserve to be recognized as the most patriotic cities in America.
