Cookies and Cupcakes

Joshua hails from Tazewell, VA where he graduated from Tazewell High School in June 2011. In March 2014, Joshua enlisted into the United States Navy as a Master-at-Arms (more commonly known as military police). He was responsible for maintaining gate integrity, conducting law enforcement, responding to emergency situations, and de-escalating situations. October 19, 2016 had different plans for Joshua when he became a stroke patient, and then a stroke survivor. Within minutes, his entire Naval career had been decided, and he medically retired two years later.

What brought him to Dog Tag and what he hopes to gain can be simmered down to the same word: direction. Since his stroke, he feels he hasn’t truly had any. He hopes to regain a sense of purpose and find himself through pursuing a business career. He has heard nothing but great things about the Dog Tag Fellowship, and is humbled to have this opportunity. His favorite baked good is tied between cookies and cupcakes.
