Military town

Lawton, is only half of the area, really the area is now called Ft. Sill - Lawton, the town selectmen decided to try and use teh military base to increase funding and tourist. More than 60% of the population is military, military family's or work on the military base. Locals who are not military own places that are 'locals only' establishments, such establishments can be bars and pool halls but also barber shops and car washes as well.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:quiet, low crime, away from city life
  • Cons:over 80 miles from a major city, OKC, sounds of artilery going off in the distance.
  • In a nutshell:The middle of no where

    As a retiree, I hate it when towns do not properly appreciate the military. We give a lot to their economy.
