U.S. Navy’s 246th Birthday

VetCV wishes a happy 246th birthday to all of our sailors.


Happy Birthday Shipmates! We hope all of our Active Duty and Veteran Sailors can take the time to reflect on our Navy’s long history as well as what lies ahead. Hopefully you can find a way to celebrate, whether that’s looking through an old photo album or calling up a friend you served with.


Below, you can watch the Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Mike Gilday deliver the 246th Navy Birthday Address. We hope that his words will let our VetCV community know that our Navy’s future is in good hands.

Your Country Needs YOU… Again!

As Veterans, it’s time to Step-Up once again to ‘serve our country’… and to help ‘bring back our country’ from the pandemic bruising put upon us. This time The Mission, YOUR MISSON (should you choose to accept it), is to help ‘repair the damage’ sustained to our American spirit and reputation as the Land of Opportunity you’ve served to preserve!

Your country needs you to help reopen/keep-the-doors-open, as well as keep the economy clicking! The opportunities are endless! Can you serve patrons or train those in need? Can you sell or service what’s desired? Can you construct, assemble or provide transportation for what’s required? Will you??

VetCV Uncle Sam

THIS IS where, as VETERANS, WE COME IN. WE GO… to work, to help, to restore and repair! We’ve got what it takes to help our country get back on its feet! Whether you opt work part-time, or just for a short timeIT’S TIME!  And IT’S IMPORTANT!

This is your opportunity to lend a learned hand and/or try something NEW.  It’s up to you! Challenge yourself, just have fun, or dare to do what you’ve never done before. Now’s the time! Familiar fare or completely different terrain, You’re An ASSET, either way, with plenty of skill, talent and ability. Don’t let it go to waste. It’s never too late to expand your horizons!

STEP-UP, One-More-Time-To-Serve, This Time to Help Get Our Economy Back on Track

You’ll be their HERO! Fortifying the American workforce will not only protect our economy, which has grown from the hard work and aspirations that the very freedoms you’ve honored and served to preserve have allowed and encouraged, but its preservation ALSO serves to honor those who served to protect it.

Now is also a great time for Transitioning Service Members to take advantage of the high workforce demand. Check out the VetCV jobs posted by our Patriot Employers, find a job on online job boards, or apply wherever you see a Help Wanted sign.

The ultimate act of compassion – Memorial Day 2021

TEAM VetCV Logo

 

The Ultimate Act of Compassion

This weekend we need to pause, reflect, and be thankful for the life we have.  Memorial Day is an annual remembrance of those who sacrificed their lives so we can have our freedom.  Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it.

TeamVetCV salutes our fallen and the sacrifices families have made through military service. They did not know you, however, they did it for you. That’s the Ultimate Act of Compassion

Respectfully, 

TeamVetCV

Paycheck Protection Program Version 2.0 is Now Open, Timing to Submit is Critical – Do Not Wait

Vetrepreneurship News & Tips

Veteran owned businesses, call your banker now! You don’t want the money to run out before you get yours!

The $284 billion PPP2 refundable loan offering is now available for struggling small businesses, especially Veteran owned businesses.  Just as in the first round, most PPP2 loans use the same multiplier of 2.5 times a company’s average monthly payroll for 2019. This time there is also increased access to PPP for veteran, minority, underserved, and women-owned businesses. SBA has also expanded the ways you can use the funds. To be eligible you must:

  • Have 300 or fewer employees
  • Suffered at least a 25 percent drop in quarterly revenue in ANY quarter from 2020 relative to the same quarter in 2019
  • For those who received funds from the first PPP offering, eligible second-draw borrowers must have used or will use the full amount of their first PPP loan on or before the date on which the PPP Second Draw loan is disbursed
Calculating Your Revenue Loss

Calculating your revenue loss can be tricky so make sure your CPA and/or banker agree on the numbers. This time you may now use your 2020 payroll data as well, potentially maximizing your loan amount. Calculating revenue loss; pick ANY single quarter from 2020 where your gross revenue dropped at least 25 percent OR you can choose to annualize your numbers (compare your 2020 revenue from 2019 numbers). Though we believe these are the rules today, always triple check with the SBA (link below), your CPA, and your banker.

View the latest information from the SBA here for more information or here for Veteran specific information.

Even if you didn’t apply for a PPP loan for your business the first time, you really need look into it and to act now!

Use of Funds

The use of funds has been expanded a bit this time and now includes payroll costs, mortgage interest expense, rent, utilities, covered operations expenditures, covered property damage costs, covered supplier costs, and covered worker protection expenditures.

Expect Some Confusion & Clunkiness With the Rollout

Your banker will likely be overwhelmed with requests for information and help in processing applications but don’t take the chance of you falling through the cracks – CALL THEM! Expect a bit of chaos and confusion though as everyone tries to set up processes while making required adjustments and enhancements to their systems. The good news is that some borrowers using the same banker as their first PPP lender, may even see reduced paperwork requirements. Adding to the likely frenzy will be a lot of “elbowing” by everyone to make sure they get to the front of the line, be prepared to do a little of that yourself. As Veterans, that’s not a new concept though, go get some.

If your banker isn’t as responsive as you need them to be, give them a little room for understanding, but you may also be well served to try find another one to hedge your bets while you wait! Remember, one plan is no plan, make a back-up plan. You don’t want the money to run out before you get yours! Make sure you get on their radar, confirm they are indeed participating, and get your application submitted ASAP.

2020 is Thankfully Behind Us, Let’s Crush 2021!

VetCV Happy New Year 2021

Good Riddance to 2020! Now Let’s Take On 2021.

Good riddance, 2020 is behind us, the election is over, and now we “Adapt and Overcome” as we make 2021 a year of new prosperity for our friends, family, and America. We could all benefit from “Calm Seas and Fair Winds” for a few minutes, then Let’s Crush 2021!

This year VetCV we will continue to add new Vault App features asked for by members. We are working on the next two Vault modules in our development que for the first half of ’21. They are My Health and My Pets.

  • My Health: This feature will begin with being able to track your meds and immunizations. Additional My Healt pieces will be rolled out as they are built and tested.
  • My Pets: We are pretty excited about the My Pets module too. Probably because we know how important they are to so many of us. You’ll be able to quickly create a profile for all your pet family members, even track important information about them. We’ll keep you posted on our progress.

Our really big push for 2021 will also be on helping the VetCV community find “Great Jobs with Great Employers.” In addition to getting more employers to join as Top Patriot Employer Partners, we will be adding more vetted teaming Partners who offer a variety of services and resources you can use as search, interview, and secure your next job. If you know someone who’s hiring we’d love the referral, please send them our way.

Get Ready Now

Because we believe COVID will be under control as we approach summer (hopefully sooner), the economy will roar back! Therefore, employers will need outstanding talent like you, and we will be signing “Happy Days Are Here Again” before summer. Now is the time to make sure you are ready by having your Resume up to date and converted to “Civilian Speak.” The VetCV Vault helps you build your resume quickly and easily with the Resume Builder feature. Of course we also have links to Teaming Partners that help Veterans on a daily basis navigate your transition. 

If you have any ideas, interesting stories, or news your VetCV brothers and sisters can benefit from, let us know and we’ll get on it. Good riddance to 2020, let’s get going and take on 2021!
