What I can find is that VVI regiments were regiments made up of veterans of units that had enlisted for three years but some of the veterans had enlisted for longer than three years and were combined with vetereans from other units to form a VVI regiment. However, I can't find this to be true for the 47th Ohio as I find it formed in August 1861 and mutered out August 1865. So I can't say I understand fully the use of the term.
