Dog Tag Cohort 8 recently spent a day on Capitol Hill to meet with Members of Congress and talk about their experiences as veterans, military spouses and caregivers. Thank you to everyone on the Hill who helped to make this day a success!

The PenFed Foundation has announced a $25,000 donation to Dog Tag Inc. to support veteran entrepreneurs and the military community through DTI’s fellowship program.
“We are proud to support Dog Tag Inc.’s fellowship program because it empowers transitioning service-disabled veterans, military spouses, and caregivers to discover personal and professional fulfillment in the civilian world,” said Bruce Kasold, acting President and COO of the PenFed Foundation. “The program aligns perfectly with our Foundation’s commitment to help members of the military community secure their financial future.”
