From staff reports
For the third year in a row, Beaufort has been named the most patriotic community in South Carolina by Insurify, an insurance company.
To honor the most patriotic community in each state, Insurify’s data science and research team identified the communities with the highest share of military personnel. They referred to Insurify’s database of more than 2 million car insurance applications.
When applying for coverage, drivers indicate whether they or any other driver on their policy are an active service member or a veteran, as well as their city and state of legal residence. From this, Insurify’s data scientists found the community in each state with the greatest proportion of citizens with military service.
“Every day, military personnel put their lives and safety at risk for the protection of our country” Insurify CEO Snejina Zacharia said in a release. “This award is about recognizing the love and sacrifice of the once and current service members who bring pride to these communities.”
