My understanding is that a disproportinate number of US military personnel come from the Bible Belt.


This seems to be the case. The Bible Belt is also a poverty belt with low educational attainment. Unlike other parts of the US, there are not alternative industries like mining, ranching or farm labor to provide jobs to those without a college degree.

The military is all that's left.
