For a town to be a big military town, in my book, it needs multiple installations or a BIG honkin base.

Fayetteville also has Pope AFB.

In addition, outside of Columbia, just east of Fort Jackson (20 miles or so) is Shaw AFB, with McEntire ANG station between them (sort of).

Beaufort, SC has Parris Island and a Marine Air Corps station.

Charleston has the Naval Weapons Station, Charleston AFB (mostly cargo), and used to have a much larger naval presence.

Outside of Jacksonville, NC is Camp LeJeune, but Cherry Point MCAS is just NorthEast of there.

In addition, perhaps unfairly, I pretty much consider GA to be divided up into three sections: Atlanta, Savannah, and Army-Land.

When I was in Hampton Roads I was surprised by the large military influence on the area.

Does anyone know what Military Bases are so common right outside southern or kind of southern cities where, for the most part, large cities in the North don't have as big of military bases right outside its' large cities like the south does?

Operation Continued Reconstruction. Lincoln may have declared "mission accomplished" in 1865, but our service men and women are still occupying/serving down there.

The Puget Sound area has a huge military presence, just not all in one city.

McChord AFB and Ft. Lewis in the Tacoma area.
Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton.
Submarine Base in Bangor.
Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Keyport.
Naval Hospital Bremerton.
HQ USCG 13th District in Seattle.
Naval Station Everett.
NAS Whidbey Island.

Growing up the area during the cold war, you pretty much knew that you lived in the bulls-eye.
