“Since the pandemic hit, one study found nearly 40% of active-duty service members have food insecurity; for minority members, it’s more than half.”
I am very grateful for what Dog Tag Bakery alumni bring to our organization and communities across the nation. This Black History Month, I encourage everyone to learn more about our alumni who are finding important ways to live life on their own terms outside of the military.
This #BlackHistoryMonth, we’re celebrating Black-owned alumni businesses.
Our alumni community is diverse in talent and expertise, which is represented by the wide variety of businesses you will find in this blog post.https://t.co/RHdJ7siC9T

I am saddened to hear about the passing of my friend Mary Wilson. I got to know Mary when I was the Chairman of HDI (The Humpty Dumpty Institute), for which Mary was a spokeswoman. This video shares some of her amazing work with the organization. My thoughts are with her family and friends as we mourn the loss of this legendary performer and “Supreme” humanitarian.
“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
