If there ever was a nuclear dieaster the goverment would want to keep the infected away to prevent cross contamination. It would do no good to save one city thats close to other metro areas because they would become infected by nuclear fallout. So one bomb cood whype the eastern seaboard of the usa because of the dense population and the fall out. I would choose a city with a large anough metro yet far away from other areas so it wouldnt get nuclear fall out from neighboring cities. Then population would be able to start over successfully. I would choose Denver but all the goverment facillities are there and thats why the goverment built the faculaties far out from the city so people cant walk to them easly and cause a mob of zombies trying to break into denvers military secret goverment centers. So my next choice would Be Seattle its far away from other metro areas and its surounded by mountains to help keep out fall out from other metros in th US . Then I would choose Anchorage just in case seattle was not far anough away and Seattle would be the gate way to alaska for the few people who survived. USA would be uninhabital for so many years look at chernobyl in rusia is still highly radiactive after 30years . So just SEATTLE And ANCHORAGE Seattle could move to alaska and repopulate and start over.It would be the gateway to Alaska .

"San Diego County's military payroll is now the largest in the country, reflecting the Defense Department's decision to shift resources to the West Coast to contend with real and potential threats from China and the Middle East.
The payroll of local active duty personnel increased by $1.3 billion last year to $11.1 billion, pushing the San Diego-Carlsbad-San Marcos metro area ahead of the huge military complex in Virginia Beach, Norfolk and Newport News, says the Commerce Department. The shift shows that we've gone from worrying about NATO and Russia to worrying about China and Iran.
The Navy has been steadily reassigning warships to San Diego, which now has at least 56 vessels here. That figure is scheduled to rise to 83 by 2014. And Camp Pendleton is in the midst of a $3 billion construction boom that will last into 2012.
“San Diego is in as good, if not better position, to get through these cuts than other places to get through the cuts,” said John Pike, an analyst with Globalsecurity.org. “That’s where the West Coast fleet is concentrated. And resources are shifting from the Atlantic to the Pacific."

"It has many military institutions for the United States Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps.

The Navy bases include the Navy Submarine Support Facility, Naval Base Point Loma, Naval Station San Diego (also known as the 32nd Street Naval Station) and the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center San Diego. Close to San Diego is the Naval Air Station North Island and Naval Amphibious Base Coronado. San Diego is also the site of the largest naval fleet in the world, and has become the largest concentration of Naval facilities in the world."

Thanks for repping me and simply saying "no" haha

Here's what I found:

Norfolk
San Diego

First sentence of San Diego's page says it is the largest on the West Coast.

Doesn't look as that's happened yet, so it's still not true. You have that San Diego is the site of the largest Naval fleet in the World, the US Pacific fleet I'd assume. So it's the home site for the Pacific fleet. As it stands now, it's still not the biggest Naval Base.

The Naval Base at San Diego has 13 piers and houses the Pacific fleet which is currently between 50 and 60 ships.

The Naval Base at Norfolk has 14 piers and supports 75 ships, it also has 11 aircraft hangars that support 134 planes. It still currently houses the largest concentration of US Naval Forces and supports the United States Fleet Forces Command which operates in the Atlantic, Mediterranean and Indian Oceans, and it consists of 190-200 ships. Sounds like semantics to me, San Diego is the site of the largest "fleet" currently at around 60 ships, while Norfolk supports a 200 ship force.

The Pacific is definitely gaining in importance, but you're dreaming if you think the US will ever demote Norfolk and the Atlantic to a lesser status anytime soon, if ever.

The CDC is under the United States Department of Health and Human Services, which is out of D.C. and the Cartoon Network, TBS, and CNN are all owned by Time Warner, which is out of NYC. That being said, I think there might be a little too much emphasis placed on Atlanta being decisions for these institutions are essentially being made elsewhere.

Yea but I would argue that decisions for these institutions are still being made in Atlanta. GE doesn't necessarily make the program choices for NBC even though it is the majority holder of the company.

Cleveland and it's metro area are quite important. The area has quickly become a leader
with regards to WORLD CLASS healthcare ... and there is also a large NASA research centre
in the city.
Cleveland also has retained the headquarters of 8 FORTUNE 500 companies.
