Elizabethtown Tops List of Military Boom Towns

Elizabethtown, in the shadow of Fort Knox, has been named the number one military boom town in America.

Military spending provides a major boost to the economies of communities like Elizabethtown, which ranks number one in the nation when it comes to population growth, per-capita personal income and gross domestic product.

Other cities in the top five of the list include Clarksville, TN, the home of Fort Campbell.
