We have a lot of retired military living here and they are very friendly and supportive. There are new home being built all the area and we are just north of San Antonio, Texas. They have a very strong AARP there. Plus UTSA college plus community colleges. Weather is great here low humidity makes it very comfortable to be out side for activities or to sit outside.
