Si Hua Deng, J.B. Hunt Dedicated Manager in TrainingJ.B. Hunt logo

By Eric Airola, Sr Manager Military & Veteran Relations

With college graduation looming, Si Hua Deng was no exception to the pressures of landing a job after her final semester, which were compounded due to the global pandemic throwing millions of Americans into unemployment. Unlike most though, being an Army ROTC cadet gave her access to the Army's Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) network where she learned about companies like J.B. Hunt who seek military talent. Now, having graduated from UCLA as an Army Reserve 2nd Lieutenant, Sia Hua has successfully secured a job as a manager trainee at J.B. Hunt.

As a freshman, Si Hua joined ROTC wanting military experience to back a career in Foreign Service. After adjusting to life in the field and getting past the blisters from breaking in combat boots during training, she grew to love operations and logistics. Si Hua became a leader in the S-3 Operations section of her ROTC battalion and decided to focus on the supply chain logistics industry for her civilian career.

Army Reserve 2nd Lieutenant and former ROTC PaYS Cadet, Si Hua Deng, J.B. Hunt Dedicated Manager in Training The first time Si Hua reached out to J.B. Hunt about the manager training program, there were no open positions. She was diligent, following up with managers to inquire about connections in the industry. As soon as a position became available, Si Hua was on the short list of candidates. Interviewing virtually was another challenge that Si Hua had to overcome, but working through those challenges, she was rewarded with a job offer.

Today, Si Hua is a manager trainee in J.B. Hunt's Dedicated Contract Services (DCS) business, learning the ropes of logistics, scheduling, billing, payroll processes, safety, driver management, and decision making. Her favorite aspect of the job is the dynamic nature of operations and working with the drivers who keep America moving.

"It's a lot like what I was taught in ROTC," said Si Hua. "Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty and take care of your troops."

Next steps for Si Hua are to pause J.B. Hunt manager training and attend Army specialty training at Ft Gordon Georgia before returning to drill at the 397th Signal Company. Once back from military leave, she will complete her management training and be assigned as a Transportation Manager at one of the Dedicated locations in Southern California.

Si Hua offers this advice for Army ROTC cadets: "Investigate PaYS if you are going into the Reserves. College career services departments are good, but they work with so many students that it is easy to get lost. PaYS exposes you directly to companies that are military friendly." Her advice for all PaYS participants is to start early and do your research on the firms that you are interested in. "You can't be too prepared."





Littlefield Investment Company Signs PaYS Partnership Agreement in a Virtual CeremonyLittlefield Virtual Signing Ceremony

Story by: Anthony Velasco

On 17 September 2020, Littlefield Investment Company and the Oklahoma City Army Recruiting Battalion, solidified their partnership in the Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program. The Littlefield Investment Company is the 907th PaYS partner to join the Army PaYS program and the second PaYS partner to announce their partnership through a virtual signing ceremony during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The virtual ceremony started at 10 a.m. and hundreds of viewers were able to witness the partnership between the U.S. Army and the Littlefield Investment Company. To date, the virtual signing ceremony has received over 800 views on the Army PaYS' Facebook page, and continues to gain a significant amount of engagement.

Littlefield Oil Company was established in 1946 in Booneville, Arkansas by brothers A.B. and W.C. Littlefield, and their spouses. Littlefield Oil started as a bay station which served Logan County, Arkansas communities with car service and fuel. The Littlefield family realized that people in surrounding communities also needed a competitive fuel source. They purchased a single fuel transport truck and began selling wholesale fuel to surrounding counties. Since then their company has expanded and continues to provide valuable services to their community.

The partnership with the PaYS program was initiated by Army PaYS Marketer, Crancena Ross who introduced the program to Bill Hanesworth, CEO with the Littlefield Investment Company. Mr. Hanesworth acknowledged the benefits of becoming a PaYS partner and pursued the approval of Aaron Littlefield, III. Mr. Littlefield was aware of the values and professional disciplines of Military Veterans and how the company seeks to provide opportunities of employment following their transition from their Military obligations. He openly shared how the disciplines of Veterans will help grow and expand the Littlefield Investment Company and meet their future endeavors. The company seeks the qualities of leadership that is instilled in our Veterans. In his video Mr. Littlefield states, "Where will that leadership come from? We think it will come out of programs such as Army PaYS".

During the virtual ceremony, LTC Jacob Cecka, Commander, Oklahoma City Recruiting Battalion recognized the commitment of the Littlefield Investment Company in becoming a PaYS partner. He also acknowledged their significant support of guaranteeing an interview for PaYS Soldiers and possible employment after their service obligation. LTC Cecka stated, "The partnership with the Littlefield Investment Company is a natural fit and we are proud to have them as a community partner".

The Army PaYS program continues to welcome more virtual signing ceremonies for our partners.

Italian-American Heritage Month graphic

PaYS Highlights Italian-Owned PaYS Partner Reborn Cabinets, Inc.

Story by Corin Gillens


Italian-American Heritage Month happens in October and has been celebrated since 1989 after being proclaimed by President George W. Bush and the U.S. Congress. The month is to honor the achievements and contributions of Italian immigrants and their descendants living in the United States.

In honor of Italian-American Heritage, the Army PaYS program highlights our PaYS partner, Italian-owned company, Reborn Cabinets Inc.. Reborn Cabinets logo


Reborn is now a third-generation family managed company. In addition to the leadership of Vinny and Brenda, now retired, Vince (President) and Anthony Nardo (CFO) and most recently, third-generation family member, Seth Nardo (General Manager), have expanded Reborn Cabinets to seven locations, including locations in San Diego, the Bay area and Nevada. (Pictured from left to right: Vince Nardo (Son) President, Brenda Nardo (Wife/Mother) Co-Founder, Vinny Nardo (Father) Founder, Anthony Nardo (Son) CFO. Seth Nardo (Grandson) General Manager)





Right - (Pictured from left to right: Vince Nardo (Son) President, Brenda Nardo (Wife/Mother) Co-Founder, Vinny Nardo (Father) Founder, Anthony Nardo (Son) CFO. Seth Nardo (Grandson) General Manager)

Vinny Nardolillo, Founder and Owner was born in Brooklyn, New York to Italian immigrant parents at a time when the country was struggling to recover from the Great Depression (1929 -1939). Vinny is one of eleven children and he along with his siblings were raised with strong old-world work ethics and customs. His father was a masonry contractor and two of his brothers were in the cabinet manufacturing business.

Vinny Nardolillo At 17, Vinny enlisted in the United States Navy where he served on active duty from 1954-1957. After his discharge he went to work with his brothers and under their watchful guidance and tutelage, it wasn't long before he excelled at custom cabinet design and construction.

In 1963, Vinny married Brenda and they soon had two sons, Vince and Anthony. Not to be defeated by serious downturn of the economy in 1970s, and coupled with sickness, the family decided to leave New York and head west.

In a green station wagon with wood trim sides, the family attached a 22-foot travel trailer and worked their way across the country seeking a new place to call 'home'. They traveled for six months, stopping to explore various economies across the country working in Dallas and Albuquerque until eventually finding their way to Anaheim, California. Vinny's expertise in Cabinet Refacing made him a valuable commodity to kitchen remodelers everywhere they stayed.

Settling in California in 1975, Vinny introduced the cabinet refacing process on the West Coast as it is done today. In 1983, tired of the long commutes, Vinny opened Reborn Cabinets in Anaheim, California with a $300 table saw and a 1,200 square foot facility. Thanks to hard work, old world ethics, and with a true love and appreciation of family and people, Vinny, Reborn' s founder, has attempted at every turn to instill pride and excellence in the Reborn team members. Today the company holds at the heart of its core values the "Vinny Principle" (Treat each client's home with the respect as if it were your own.)

As the company grew and with a desire to do more for the community, the Nardo Family tasked Team Reborn with choosing programs for Team Reborn to get involved with that would serve the community and enhance the team's understanding of service to its customer. This began the Learn from the Pros seminars hosted at a selected Reborn location and the annual Manufacturing Day event where students are bussed to the Anaheim location and given tours of the facility to expose future generations to the wonderful world of manufacturing. Another favorite is 'Baths for the Brave'. This program is a nation-wide campaign where 12 businesses across the U.S. donate a shower system to a veteran. A way to serve those who have served us.

Having received Family-Owned Business of the Year and Manufacturing Business of the Year from the Anaheim Chamber and selected as a Top Workplace by the OC Register, the Nardos are quick to point out the recognition is because of the strong team ethics and commitment to the company and the community.

Team Schierl events



Team Schierl Companies became a PaYS Partner in 2018 and consists of three companies; The Store (Schierl Sales Corporation), Subway (Universal, Inc.) and Schierl Tire & Service, Inc. The company is headquartered in Stevens Point, WI and has over 55 locations in the mid and upper Wisconsin area and the tip of Michigan.

Team Schierl is committed to giving back to their community through various functions and events. Each year the company has a large event with the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Athletics Department. This event is called "Pink Game for Cancer" and is a joint effort between Team Schierl, BSN Sports, the UWSP Pointers Football team and UWSP Athletics.

Each year the Pink Game raises money through corporate sponsorships and through selling specially designed t-shirts or sweat-shirts sold prior to game day. On the day of the game day there is a silent auction of locally donated baskets, vintage football helmets and Pointers game worn pink jerseys. Throughout the week leading up to the game, "Pink Week" is supported by the UWSP students and faculty as they participate with promotions on campus. Just one of the charities benefitting from this event is the Breast Cancer Family Foundation (bcff.org). Pink Game graphic

Many of the events this year have been canceled due to COVID-19 including the Pink Game, an event that has taken place for 10 years running and has raised almost $500,000! The enthusiasm can be understood by the words of the Co-CEO, Tim Schierl who has said, "We are so humbled by the ongoing support we have received from the community, UWSP and our sponsors. Coming together in the fight against cancer is what it's all about, we all know someone that is impacted by cancer in some way and to witness the support we receive, is unbelievable."

Toledo Army Recruiting Company Sets Monthly Recruiting Record

Story by Robert Osman with contribution from Davin Bentley

The PaYS Team would like to congratulate the Toledo Army Recruiting Company on an outstanding month in strengthening our Nation's Army!

On an ordinary day in Cleveland Battalion's Toledo Company Recruiting Station, you'll most likely find a group of Soldiers working diligently to fulfill their mission - just as they have month after month.

Rockstar BN logo But August was not an ordinary month for the Toledo Rockstars. For a company that often feels like the underdog, August presented them with mission numbers they had never seen before. Their commander, Capt. Zach Priday, was up for the challenge.

"We needed a total team effort," Priday said. "We've been working towards this goal for months, spoke about it daily, and had a shared vision across the organization of making mission in August."

That team effort relied on every noncommissioned officer in the company to be on their A game. There was no margin for error; failure was never an option. Every day counted, and every day the numbers grew. Together the Toledo Company not only met their mission, but exceeded it in stunning fashion, breaking a long-standing company record.

"What makes this accomplishment even more meaningful is that this was the largest mission ever assigned to the company and we achieved it despite being in the middle of a global pandemic," Priday said. "Not only that, but every NCO in the company wrote at least one enlistment contract. This was a historic first for our company."

Who better to lead the way in that effort than the 3rd Recruiting Brigade's station commander of the quarter and the year, Sgt. 1st Class Zackary Bonner? The Bowling Green Recruiting Station commander has clearly made an impact since his arrival. Motivating his Soldiers to a higher work ethic, Bonner, a former Infantry Soldier, has pushed himself to a higher standard.

"Being recognized as the station commander of the quarter and year is something I have always wanted for myself, but I also feel I owe it to my Soldiers to lead by example and be a well-rounded leader," Bonner said. "Physical training matters, college education matters, leading matters, boards matter and winning matters. Winning can be contagious."

Proving the point, not only did every NCO contribute to the unit's success, but some of them took the matter to a new level.

Sgt. 1st Class David Hoffer from the Bowling Green Station, Staff Sgt. Madison Bollenbach from the Fremont Station and Staff Sgt. Robert Fitzgerald from the Toledo West Station each enlisted four Future Soldiers during the month. Hoffer, a former Infantry Soldier as well, gives credit to his command for paving the way to success. Balancing a combination of patience and honesty to get the most from his contacts, he said he changed his tactics very little in August.

"I really did not do anything different than before," he said. "Some people have bad months and other months they just crush it. What I think contributed most to my successful month was being patient and following up with people. Text and social media really have been paying off for me since COVID started."

The difficult part of having a stand-out month is finding a way to keep the momentum going. Priday feels success follows success.

"Here in Toledo we are constantly trying to get better and find ways we can improve, both as individuals and as an organization," Priday said. "Once you think you've reached your potential, you will stop growing and become complacent. Even though we made history in August and set the example for U.S. Army Recruiting Command, we will continue to raise the bar and set more records."

Army PaYS Highlights Army CASA Anthony DeToto Sr.

Story by: Crancena Ross

In honor of Italian-American Heritage Month, the PaYS team recognizes, Mr. Anthony DeToto Sr., Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army, Texas (East). Interviewed by PaYS Marketer Crancena Ross.

Where were you born?
"The hospital was in Hoboken, New Jersey with great views of Southern Manhattan. We lived in Bergen County, at the time an area comprised of Italian, Sicilian and Irish Americans."

What was your experience growing up in your family, how has this impacted your view of culture?
"I was the oldest of three boys and seventeen grandchildren. I have fond memories of three great-grandmothers who lived to be ninety-three, two Italian and one Sicilian. They spoke very little English (yet demanded all of us speak English without an Italian or New Jersey accent). We had many friends from varied backgrounds and socioeconomic demographics in our lives. We wound up moving four more times to three different states in the Midwest. Culture is an amalgamation of relationships, rituals, expected behaviors, values, communication and thoughts."

Why did you want to become a CASA?
"To share the calling to the most noble profession, being a servant leader. I took an oath to provide a lifetime of service to our nation in 1987. When asked to sign back up in 2017, I did not hesitate. I witnessed the impact that Mike Hood and Randy Pais had as Texas CASAs. It affords me the opportunity to collaborate more frequently with Joe DePinto, Darcy Anderson, Brian Concannon, Rich Pascoe, Erica Jefferies and my fellow Houstonian Tim Kopra."

What is your favorite part of being a CASA?
"Assisting Veterans in their post-Military transition. Most Military Veterans don't know what they wish to do next but they are confident it won't have as much meaning as what they just did in the Military."

How does your previous job experience tie in with being a CASA?
"Being a CASA requires passion, capacity, network and perseverance. My time as a Military Officer, Sales Professional, Wealth Counselor and advisor to business owners all required high emotional quotient. Over time I began to listen more than I talked and ask clarifying questions in a Socratic dialogue, occasionally delivered in a self-deprecating, humble and optimistic manner."

As a CASA, do you find it easier to open doors within the community?
Yes, the Military is an elevator to the middle class and Texans are empathetic to our mission. Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) guarantees job interviews post service. Army Recruiting can show enlistees how to have an under graduate and graduate degree before they turn twenty-six or pivot to pick up strong vocational and leadership skills. Twenty-five percent of Houston Independent School District students aspire to a field in public service, law enforcement police, fire or Military. If we access the correct doors, they often lead to elevators."

What about being a CASA do you find to be the most challenging aspect of the job?
"The prospect of meeting a family at Ellington Field on behalf of the Secretary of the Army when a family member is returning in a flag draped casket having made the ultimate sacrifice."

If there was one thing you could do differently in your life what would it be?
"Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers. I should have ignored the Engineer Branch when they told me to skip Ranger School."
