Going "Outside the Wire" takes guts. It's military jargon for going beyond the relatively safe confines or the support of a base.  It takes courage, armor, and the protection of your community. As our Fellows move from their military lives to defining success in the civilian world, going "Outside the Wire" means pushing beyond their comfort zones and redefining themselves. Come inside this journey as our Fellows go "Outside the Wire."


The Fellowship

Dog Tag Inc. (DTI) is an innovative five-month training program that holistically fosters the growth of driven, entrepreneurial-minded wounded veterans, spouses and caregivers through a world-class education, ample leadership development opportunities, and a personalized business management rotation.

By the end of our program, graduating fellows have earned a Certificate in Business Administration from Georgetown University's School of Continuing Studies. The curriculum serves as an introduction to business from an academic perspective and consists of seven courses that are tailored to the small business-focused goals of our fellows. Courses include accounting, management, communication, financial management, marketing, business policy, and entrepreneurship.

The Value

Whether you are a veteran, military spouse, caregiver, active duty military or a patriotic citizen, we at Dog Tag want you to share in the joy, challenges, and opportunities we offer to support America’s Heroes.  This blog is about sharing their collective experiences, offering invaluable insights that are important to you.

While on that subject - a verbal 'thank you' goes a long way, but tangible gratitude goes even further.  While you’re here, stop by to see how you can participate in supporting the program.

The Community of Bloggers

Most blogs are all about one person’s experience with their own families or the families they work with. Which is totally great. But here’s what makes this blog different: you will hear from a diverse group of people, all the time!  We will have veterans, military spouses, caregivers - current fellows, alumni, and guest speakers discuss their impressions on the fellowship program, their unique experiences in business and in life.  

In the beginning, we will plan to post bi-weekly, but this could increase, depending on our readership - so check on us often or subscribe to our post alerts!

You are HIGHLY encouraged to comment, ask questions, and/or provide suggestions.  We enjoy hearing from our community and our customers.
