Officer Down Memorial Page

Many military veterans are also members of law enforcement. You can’t say you love military, then turn around and say you hate law enforcement. And to label all members of law enforcement as bad because of the actions of some is unfortunate and unfair to the many heroes honored at Officer Down Memorial Page.

capitalone.com's Auto Loans and Car Buying Guide for Veterans

We here at Capital One have curated a new guide titled “Guide to Auto Loans and Car Buying for Veterans”.

Information on helping veterans buy a home is quite abundant. Info on buying a car however seems to have taken a… back seat… (sorry). With this guide we hope to fill this informational gap and help lead our veterans through:

  • Ways to pay for your car.
  • Auto loan and manufacturer discounts for veterans.
  • Breaking a car lease while in the military.
  • Programs to help veterans afford a car.

For everything that our veterans have done for us, we hope that our inside expertise, within this guide, can play some small part in saying, “thank you.”

Money.com's Military VA Loans Resource

We Hope To Brighten Your Day!

Corny joke:

Did you hear about the bacon cheeseburger who couldn’t stop telling jokes?

It was on a roll!

Some Data: Fewer than 12 percent of the country’s estimated 24 million veterans are currently using their VA loan benefits. This means that 88% of veterans are buying homes without their exclusive VA benefits and overpaying for their homes by about 10-20k.

We’ve created a guide for VA loans to be able to inform more home buyers on how to navigate the industry and how to apply for the loan correctly:

Consumers Advocate

An organization dedicated to helping people make informed decisions. We’re proud to say our research has been featured by many veteran aid programs, veteran nonprofits, and the VA themselves. Our team of researchers recently spent over 200 hours looking at the ins and outs of VA loans, helping veterans of all generations navigate VA loans to receive the financial aid they deserve.

https://www.consumersadvocate.org/va-loans

According to the VA, only 6% of the nation’s 21 million veterans and active servicemembers make use of the VA loan program. We discovered this is a result of both misinformation and lack of education regarding the requirements, terms, and benefits of the program.

Credit Karma

Following military service, veterans are eligible for many benefits. Our guide walks you through the range of services and assistance offered to help veterans transition to civilian life, including home buying assistance, disability benefits, and education. It’s titled “Guide to Veterans Affairs Benefits and Loans” and you can check out the whole thing here:

https://www.creditkarma.com/home-loans/i/va-benefits-guide

Returning to civilian life can be overwhelming, but adding our guide to your website makes navigating the transition a little more straightforward.

Digital.com’s Small Business Entrepreneurship

We’ve recently published a guide specifically for US Veterans who are in the process of starting, or currently own, a small business.

Recent data points to 1 out 20 business owners being veterans, which speaks to the fact that their unique experience and perspective gives them the ideal skill set needed to successfully take on the challenges of entrepreneurship. Veterans are often able to demonstrate an inspiring style of leadership that is characterized by selflessness, balanced with the discipline to strive for continued growth and progress, and perfectly equipped to remain effective when facing the greatest of setbacks. Most of all, though every entrepreneur will have a different journey, sacrifice will undoubtedly be a part of the success story.

We want to come alongside and help veterans turn their business aspirations into successful endeavors by making sure they are aware of the unique competitive advantages available to them such as exclusive grants, training resources, and mentoring. You can learn more about it here:

www.florinroebig.com is a law firm with a long history of achieving results and representing clients from virtually every state in the Nation. Because of our passion for community involvement, we wanted to use our experience and gathered knowledge to create informational resources.

We recently wrote a guide on the many different ways discrimination can affect Veterans.

Many of us can agree that knowledge is power. This is something we’ve noticed when working with our Veteran community, and how simply learning about their experiences can provide a sense of comfort. For that reason, we created this guide for community members, who feel as though they’ve been discriminated against, and want to understand what discrimination can look like, what their rights are, as well as their options of defense.

In the guide, https://florinroebig.com/veteran-rights-discrimination, we touch on different points such as:

  • Disabled Veteran Rights
  • Discrimination in the workplace, healthcare system, social setting, and legal settings
  • The laws protecting Veteran rights
  • What to do if you have experienced discrimination
  • Government resources
  • and much more.
