Discover how Constance Milstein and Father Rick Curry, S.J. created an unexpected place to empower transitioning veterans and military families to redefine their future.
"Each time I bake bread, I'm reminded of the simplicity of mixing unrelated ingredients that are then transformed into the most wonderful delight."
Father Richard “Rick” Curry was known for his musings on the similarities between baking and the journey of life. And indeed, when Constance “Connie” Milstein and the late Father Curry first met in 2013, two unrelated ingredients were brought together to create new opportunities for service.
These two entrepreneurial spirits—and fast friends—from different backgrounds were brought together by fate and a shared dedication to service. By combining their experience in connecting communities, their belief in living life with purpose, and their love of baking, Dog Tag was born.
Dog Tag’s impact does not stop with the military community we serve. Inspired by what we do, our bakery, customers, partners, donors, and volunteers champion our mission beyond the walls of the Bakery into their own lives, their communities, and across the country.
"Happiness lies in serving, not being served”
"It’s inspiring to watch so many of these incredible individuals go on to find purpose as entrepreneurs, nonprofit founders, and community leaders. Their involvement in communities across the United States will produce countless positive outcomes for many years to come."
