We should be doing everything we can to help veterans build a bridge to employment and entrepreneurship, which is what our Dog Tag Fellowship program aims to accomplish.

“For veterans like Moulton, Sherrill, and Welle, the partisan divisions of Washington are utterly at odds with their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan. Welle said, “I graduated from Annapolis in 2002, a few months after 9/11. My friends and I deployed for a decade around the world, many to Afghanistan and Iraq. And we were doing it not as Republicans or Democrats—we were doing this as Americans.”
