Can you name some of them, you caninclude towns too...
I know San Antonio, TX for the Lackland AFB...any others?

Also, be sure to include what kind of armed forces the city mostly is (ie: Navy city like San Diego, Marine town like Le Jeune, NC, Air Force base, Army, etc. etc.
Thanks everyone

Jacksonville and Norfolk, both big Navy towns.

Tampa has McDill AFB.

Atlanta has a couple of big Army posts, McPherson and Gillem - but they are both closing soon.

Instead of Norfolk you should have said the whole Hampton Roads area. You have every branch of the military within the seven cities.

San Diego has both Navy and the Marines. I feel the marines are a bigger influence than the Navy here.
