A newly released study found Alaska to be the second most patriotic state in the union. Conducted by, the study looks at how patriotism has held up amid a year filled with riots, protests, COVID lockdowns and more.

It compared states across 13 key indicators of patriotism.

“Our data set ranges from the state’s military enlistees and veterans to the share of adults who voted in the 2020 presidential election to AmeriCorps volunteers per capita,” the WalletHub website states.

Alaska is second only to Montana in overall patriotism, according to the study. When it comes to military engagement, however, no state is better than the Last Frontier.

Alaska is second only to Georgia in terms of average number of military enlistees, and it is number one when it comes to military veterans per capita.

Alaska is also the fifth best state in terms of volunteerism.

    This survey has Florida at #49, Vermont above Wyoming, Hawaii #23 and Maryland at #3 (borders DC). I’d love to know what their metrics were.
