San Diego County is home to the largest concentration of military personnel in the world.

Military spending pumped $45 billion into the county’s gross regional product in 2015 and is responsible for 328,000 of the region’s total jobs (22% of all jobs in the county!).

The county is home to:

  • 101,254 active-duty members
  • 8,200 reservists
  • 23,638 civilian workers
  • 236,000 veterans
  • 250,000+ family members

… and growing! San Diego’s total ship count is projected to climb 84% during the next eight years.

The military market is 100% employed and is not affected by the tides of unemployment!

Some military families have more money to spend than ever before, as they are given separation pay, hazardous pay, sea pay and tax-free income when members are put in harm’s way and sent away from their families.

We reach this target audience!

Our readers utilize us as a reference for things to do, places to go and services needed. Their guaranteed income represents California’s largest money market. Advertising in the MilitaryPress lets active duty service members, veterans and their families know your business supports them!


The MilitaryPress publishes on the 1st and 15th of each month to coincide with military paydays (when it falls on a weekend, we publish that Friday) and give you perfect timing to advertise your product or business!
