You know what; I feel that I’m a pretty patriotic person. I know the pledge of allegiance, vote in all elections, I don’t mind jury duty, respect our veterans, and love red, white & blue. I believe that folks here have a sense of patriotic pride as well.


Wallet Hub has ranked the states based on their level of patriotism To create the list, Wallet Hub ranked the states on a combination of ‘military engagement’ and ‘civic engagement.’ Within those combinations, they used various metrics that were graded on a 100-point scale.

It surprised me to find out that New York was at the bottom of the list at #50 and Montana boasts the most patriotic pride. I was totally shocked by that information.

Where Did Alabama Rank?

Let’s just say we are not at the top but we are not at the bottom. We have a military engagement score of 12 and a score of 41 for civic engagement. This led Alabama to be ranked at #34. Which is much different than 2016. According to the Alabama Newscenter, in 2016 “Alabama ranked #8.”
