TAD PGS Veteran Partners
TAD PGS is excited to have a partnership with the following Veterans Groups and Organizations:
Folds of Honor
Honoring their sacrifice, educating their legacy. Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, nearly nine out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Folds of Honor seeks to meet this need by providing annual educational scholarships to the military families of those who have been killed or disabled while in active duty. These help support private education tuition, tutoring and educational summer camps for children K-12, as well as higher education tuition assistance for spouses and children. Since its founding in 2007, the organization is proud to have awarded over 7,500 scholarships, including over 2,000 in 2014 alone.

Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR)
ESGR, a Department of Defense office, was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee's military commitment. ESGR is supported by a network of more than 4,700 volunteers in 54 committees located across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam-CNMI (Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands), Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Volunteers, hailing from small business and industry, government, education and prior military service bring a vast wealth of experience to assist in serving employers, service members and their families. Together with Headquarters ESGR staff and a small cadre of support staff for each State Committee, volunteers work to promote and enhance employer support for military service in the Guard and Reserve.

The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation is the nation’s oldest and largest provider of need-based scholarships to military children. Founded in 1962 by Gen Martin F. Rockmore USMC (Ret.), the Scholarship Foundation has provided more than 33,000 scholarships valued at nearly $90,000,000 since that time. Particular attention is paid to children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen who were killed or wounded in combat or have demonstrated financial need.

Military.com's free membership connects servicemembers, military families and veterans to all the benefits of service — government benefits, scholarships, discounts, lifelong friends, mentors, great stories of military life or missions, and much more.
They believe that the benefits earned in the service should be easier to access and written in plain English. They're passionate about helping members make the most of military experience throughout life.
