About Dog Tag Heroes, Inc.:  They are a not-for-profit Tampa Bay Area-based veteran service organization, whose mission is to support veterans, as well as service men and women, as they transition from military to civilian life by aiding the veterans to shed their dependence on the military, allowing the vets to embrace their humanness through peer-to-peer mentoring,  community service, developing a holistic wellness program, and training the vets with real-world skills and computer competency so that they may obtain gainful employment or start training in another field. We also offer services such as pet fostering, small cash loans, and in the near future will offer long-term interest free loans.
