Our veteran students receive our 4-week training course at no cost to them. Roughly $20,000 is invested in each student by DDS to cover the costs of staff, equipment maintenance and licensing fees. We rely on sponsors that choose to support our heroes on their deployment to the civilian world.
By choosing to sponsor, you will be planting a seed that will grow into something wonderful. You will support a veteran as they gain marketable skills that help them thrive in the civilian world. Choose today to be a blessing to a hero that has been a blessing to our country and freedoms.
Our sponsorships are handled through donations to Lady Veterans Connect. By sponsoring, you will also be supporting an organization that provides a safe transition to civilian life for female hero veterans.
We are dedicated to giving back to our sponsors, and as such, we offer benefits for each tier. When you sponsor through Lady Veterans Connect, send us your contact information at or so we can send you your sponsorship rewards. Thank you for supporting a hero that helps us enjoy our freedoms in this country.
