WHAT MEMBERS ARE SAYING

“I really want to thank you for the wealth of knowledge you were willing to share regarding the medical industry and how to better prepare for entering it after I leave the military.  It was an extremely productive conversation for me and the Secret Sauce was awesome!”

Jose V.

Green Beret, Army Special Forces

“When it comes to achieving results, there’s not much else that can be brought to the table than those skills embodied by our veterans. They have more training and experience in virtually every critical competency than any civilian applicant.”

Marty Wartenberg

Former Senior Executive, The Rockwell Corporation

“Thanks again for your time and help in providing insight and pointers on navigating my career search. It definitely got me where I needed to be.”

Nathan K.

US Army Intelligence

“After spending a significant portion of your adult life serving your country, you’re going to want to do something more than just selling cigarettes or making skateboards. I mentor because I know, from personal experience, how challenging it can be to end your military service and then need to go find a job to support you and your family.”

Mike Grice

LtCol U.S. Marine Corps, Board of Directors, MVPvets

“MVPvets have made a profoundly positive difference to me during my transition from the USMC. There is no shortage of free advice for military veterans in transition, most of it good, but personal mentoring and hugely valuable contact time with highly qualified experts is in a class all of its own. In addition, generously provided access to senior business leaders, given to help establish new networking opportunities and business relationships is utterly invaluable.

Last, but by no means least, is the phenomenal fee-free, online learning repository for aspiring project managers and business beginners. It’s an amazing educational gift. Concentrated, focused quality of this kind is extremely rare and is a triumph of intent by committed, generous individuals to the full advantage of those fortunate enough to join MVPvets. Thank you!”

Durwood P.

Veteran, San DIego
