We’re so grateful to Ed Henry and Fox News for recently sharing the Dog Tag Bakery story. Happy New Year!
Dog Tag Bakery’s brownies were one of the gifts recommended by two former White House Social Secretaries in a recent article for nymag.com.
If there is one type of person who knows how to give an appropriate and tasteful gift, it’s a White House social secretary. So we found two: Lea Berman, social secretary for George and Laura Bush, and Jeremy Bernard, social secretary for Barack and Michelle Obama, who happen to also be co-authors of the forthcoming book, Treating People Well: The Extraordinary Power of Civility at Work and in Life. They picked out five sure-to-please, and will definitely not offend, gifts (that would be good for co-workers or people you don’t know that well), as well as some lovely holiday cards.
“Showing appreciation of service members and veterans was so important to the Bushes and Obamas…Send a batch of brownies and support our veterans at the same time!”

Greta Van Susteren’s new book and app were celebrated recently at the Jefferson Hotel in Washington, D.C. Her book, Everything You Need to Know About Social Media (Without Having to Ask a Kid), is the ultimate go-to guide for anyone looking to increase their knowledge of the most popular social media platforms. Van Susteren has also launched a new app called “Sorry,” which is a unique way of apologizing to a friend…or frienemy.
The event was hosted by Connie Milstein, Anita McBride, and Tammy Haddad.

There was a wonderful profile piece about Dog Tag Inc. in yesterday’s Washington Post:
For (Tamara) Stewart, 32, the fellowship program has been a comprehensive course in business as she gets ready for the transition to civilian life after nine years with the Army. Over the weeks, the fellows had worked through an intensive curriculum that covered such topics as management, accounting and communications. They had also gotten on-the-job experience throughout different areas of the nonprofit, rotating through operations and strategy, finance, fundraising, as well as the hands-on bakery operation up front.
Now, Stewart aspires to open a boutique restaurant. And she loved learning about fundraising so much that she wants to volunteer on the fundraising committee at The Dwelling Place, a nonprofit based in Gaithersburg, Md., that provides transitional housing for the homeless.
“It’s just opened my eyes to things that I like, and things that I thought I liked, but didn’t,” said Stewart, who now works as a paralegal at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.
I’m very proud of the work being done at Dog Tag Inc.
Veterans, thank you for your service.
