And we hope employers such as the Orlando Police Department continue to make a noble effort to hire our veterans."

Tampa battalion commander Lt. Col. Toya Davis praised the police department and its members for their service to the community and support for the military. "We commend you for your day-to-day courage, dedication, and commitment.

P.I.& I. Motor Express and U.S. Army Partner to Hire VeteransP.I.& I.'s 2013 W9L

Cleveland, Ohio - By Danny Restivo --

A Trumbull County business is offering new opportunities for returning service members.

P.I.&I. Motor Express has joined with the U.S. Army in creating a trucking program that will give preferential hiring to military veterans.

Army Lt. Col. David P. Barlet, U.S. commander of U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion in Cleveland, and Joe Kerola, president and CEO of P.I.&I. Motor Express, signed an agreement on November 15, that finalized their partnership.
Union Pacific Train Ride
"We're looking forward to getting the quality of individual the Army offers," said Kerola.

The military-civilian business agreement is part of U.S. Army's Partnership for Youth Success program. The nationwide effort allows veterans to obtain civilian certifications and requirements that relate to their military occupation. P.I.&I. Motor Express, a trucking company that specializes in steel transportation, is now among over 460 employers to partner with the U.S. Army.

"It's always great to partner with someone who shares our values," said Barlet.

He said the company's structured and productive environment will prove conducive to success for veterans or reservists looking for employment. Having an employee already familiar with job requirements is a valuable asset for employers, said Barlet.

Kerola said P.I.&I. Motor Express has 100 employees who have served in the military. He hopes the company can hire an additional 500 if business and commerce continue to grow throughout the area.

Kerola said the company transports metal products throughout the East Coast and into Texas and Oklahoma.

Along with finalizing a veteran's employment partnership with the Army, Kerola was also honored by the Department of Defense for his continued employment of America's National Guard and Reserve force.

"It's nice paying back the people who have sacrificed so much for us," Kerola said.

Nearly Two-Thirds of Employers Would Hire Military Veterans Over Other Equally Qualified Candidates, CareerBuilder Study Finds

•Nearly 3 in 10 Plan to Hire Veterans in the Next 12 Months
•CareerBuilder and Military Times Create New Jobs Site for Veterans

CHICAGO, November 9, 2012 –Despite higher than average unemployment rates, employment prospects for U.S. military veterans may be improving.

According to a new CareerBuilder study, 29 percent of employers say they are actively recruiting veterans to work for their organizations, up 9 percentage points from a year ago. Twenty-two percent are planning on adding members of the National Guard to their headcount, up 8 percentage points. Sixty-five percent said they would be more likely to hire a veteran over another equally qualified candidate. The survey was conducted by Harris Interactive© of more than 2,600 employers nationwide from August 13 to September 6, 2012.

Now CareerBuilder and Military Times are joining forces at www.MilitaryTimes.com/jobs to help veterans access the tools and information they need to connect them with the employers who most want to hire them. The Military Times Network, which includes ArmyTimes.com, AirForceTimes.com, NavyTimes.com and MarineCorpsTimes.com, in addition to MilitaryTimes.com, is visited by more than 2.5 million unique visitors each month, and offers unique content for each of the branches of the U.S. military online, and in print.

Where The Job Opportunities Are

Employers are looking to leverage the technical and leadership skills of military personnel, with 3 in 10 hoping to fill information technology positions with veterans. The most common areas for hiring U.S. service men and women are:

• Information Technology – 30 percent

• Customer Service – 23 percent

• Engineering – 22 percent

• Sales – 20 percent

• Manufacturing – 20 percent

• Business Development – 15 percent

"The unemployment rate for veterans of Afghanistan and Iraq, though declining, is still considerably higher than the general population," said Brent Rasmussen, president of CareerBuilder North America. "While military veterans possess a great deal of the business-friendly skills that employers look for in candidates, one of the challenges vets face is knowing where to begin when job hunting after they return from active duty."

"Today's military is a well-educated, professional, all-volunteer force," said Elaine Howard, president of Gannett Government Media Corp., publisher of the Military Times brands. "So when troops join the civilian workforce, they bring with them skills, discipline and unmatched drive. But navigating the job search and translating military skills into civilian terms has always been a challenge. In partnering with CareerBuilder, troops and veterans now have a better way to make the critical transition from military to civilian success."

Military Times

Military Times has teamed up with CareerBuilder on a new career site for service members and veterans. The site hosts a wide range of jobs across industries from employers eager to hire veterans and a comprehensive tool set for veterans to use in their job search. Employers in turn will be able to quickly reach a nationwide pool of veteran talent that is quick to learn, trained to take initiative, and adaptable to change.

At MilitaryTimes.com/jobs, veterans can:

• Access a skills-translator that uses a veteran's military job code to find the civilian jobs that best match the veteran's skills.
• Search for jobs by occupation, company, industry and location, and post up to five versions of their resume to appeal to a wider cast of employers.
• Check out articles featuring job search and workplace advice for veterans.
• Stay up to date on the latest job fairs and hiring trends for veterans.

Challenges for Veteran Job Searchers

One of the biggest challenges employers face when recruiting U.S. veterans is that service men and women don't always market themselves as veterans. Forty-five percent of employers say they pay more attention to applications submitted by U.S. veterans, but 30 percent say it's not always obvious whether a candidate is a veteran.

Survey Methodology

This survey was conducted online within the U.S. by Harris Interactive© on behalf of CareerBuilder among 2,655 U.S. hiring managers and human resource professionals (employed full-time, not self-employed, government and non-government) ages 18 and over between August 13 and September 6, 2012 (percentages for some questions are based on a subset, based on their responses to certain questions). With pure probability sample of 2,655, one could say with a 95 percent probability that the overall results have a sampling error of +/-1.9 percentage points. Sampling error for data from sub-samples is higher and varies.

Operation Solemn Promise: Soldiers, civilians asked to recommit themselves to Army Values

Soldiers reaffirm their oath during the 5th Signal Command's Operation Solemn Promise commemoration event, Nov. 16, 2012, at the Wiesbaden Fitness Center in Germany.

WIESBADEN, Germany (Nov. 20, 2012) -- A year after asking Soldiers and civilians to take a hard look at whether or not they truly embody the Army's Values in their daily lives during the launching of Operation Solemn Promise, 5th Signal Command's Brig. Gen. Bruce T. Crawford was joined by Command Sgt. Maj. Gerald L. Tyce with a reinforcing message Nov. 16 at the Wiesbaden Fitness Center.
 
Calling on hundreds of listeners both in the hall and listening via live streaming to "re-energize a dialogue in Army Values," Tyce said, "Operation Solemn Promise is a constant reminder of why we serve."
 
Soldiers and civilians from throughout the command who were bused in from throughout Germany or watching online were asked to re-commit themselves to the core elements of the profession of arms -- trust, military expertise, honorable service, esprit de corps and stewardship. Like the Army Values of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage, the men and women who raised their hands to recite their respective oaths during the ceremony vowed to uphold those oaths of service.
 
"These values are our foundation," said Tyce, adding that he is "honored and proud to serve.
 
"Today we renew our commitment to the profession of arms," Tyce said, calling it the "most respected institution in society."
 
Tyce said it is the responsibility of each member of the Army Family team to preserve his or her ethical standards. Calling it a noble calling to serve the nation, Tyce said Soldiers will be continuously called upon to focus on the various aspects of the profession in the future.
 
"You are part of a team," he said, charging his listeners to embrace their legacy of service and to live up to their commitment to serve.
 
Calling it a professional development opportunity, Crawford said the recommitment is a time for "clarity and purpose to an ongoing Army dialogue about Army Values.
 
"You are empowered to make a difference," 5th Signal's commander said, adding that members of the profession of arms must set the example for others to follow.
 
"Almost a year ago today I asked you to rededicate yourselves to becoming more accountable," Crawford said, saying that while strides have been made, there is more work to be done to ensure the Army is ready to meet the challenges of the future.
 
Calling the Noncommissioned Officer Corps "the heart that pumps the blood that fuels the team," Crawford also praised "the love and commitment of military families" -- particularly during November, the Month of the Military Family. He also praised the support of local national employees and asked everyone to remember those still serving in harm's way.
 
Addressing young noncommissioned officers and officers, Crawford said he was optimistic the future of the U.S. Army is bright and in good hands.
 
During the ceremony that featured vocal renditions of the U.S. and German national anthems, "God Bless America" and "God Bless the USA," attendees also joined in welcoming a group of new young recruits during a mass enlistment ceremony.
 
"These are our sons and daughters," Crawford said. "This is why we serve. This is what it's all about."




Nursing in the U.S. Army: Interview with Maj. Leonardo Pascual, Jr., RN, BSN

Maj. Leonardo Pascual, Jr., RN, BSN

What is your nursing position within the Army service?
Healthcare recruiter for the 6th Medical Recruiting Battalion and an operating room nurse (area of concentration 66E, perioperative nurse).

Can you tell us more about being a healthcare recruiter for the Army?
Army Nurse Corps officers can serve in many job descriptions, either clinical or administrative. The Army Nurse Corps ensures that the soldier-nurses are proficient in nursing skills and leadership skills. I am fortunate as an operating room nurse to have served as company commander at Tripler Army Medical Center, aide-de-camp (general's aide) and currently as a healthcare recruiter in Southern California.

As an AMEDD (Army Medical Department) recruiting officer and nurse, I serve as the officer in charge of the Santa Ana Medical Recruiting Station. We are responsible for recruiting healthcare professionals into the Army Medical Command in an area encompassing over 29,000 square miles. Also, I serve as the subject matter expert (SME) on Army Nurse Corps recruiting to the company commander of the Los Angeles Medical Recruiting Company.

I maintain contact with the staffs of local medical Troop Program Units (TPUs), hospitals, health science universities, healthcare providers and professional organizations. Due to our geographical location here in Southern California, our company (Los Angeles Medical Recruiting Company) has a total of four medical recruiting stations to better assist our applicants. Nurses have the option to join the U.S. Army on active duty (full time) or reserve status (part time).

Tell us about the Army's healthcare scholarships.
The U.S. Army Medical Command looks for qualified physicians, dentists, clinical psychologists, nurses and physical therapists, as well as physician's assistants, occupational therapists, social workers and those who are in their medical residency programs.

The U.S. Army offers some of the most generous and comprehensive scholarships available in healthcare today. The program is called the F. Edward Hébert Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP). If you want to become a physician, dentist, veterinarian, optometrist, clinical or counseling psychologist — and if you qualify — you can earn a full-tuition scholarship, plus a monthly stipend of $2,000 or more.

How did you come to serve as an Army nurse?
I always wanted to serve my country as a soldier. One of the Army programs afforded me the opportunity to complete my BSN in a civilian school while on active duty; I earned my BSN from Pacific Lutheran University. Now, I have the opportunity to earn advanced nursing degrees while continuing to serve as an officer in the U.S. Army.

Please share with us a challenge of being in the Army.
As an active duty officer, I face deployment and relocation every three years to a different army duty station. I've deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. My family has adjusted to the lifestyle fairly well and we're looking forward to our next move, believe it or not.

What else can you share with our readers about being a nurse in the Army?
You gain the clinical and leadership skills that make you a complete nurse. Also, there are many opportunities for advancement and you have the chance to complete your master's degree and Ph.D. while on active duty. More than 90 percent of Army nurses have a master's degree or a Ph.D. and some choose to earn a doctor of nursing practice (DNP) degree. The Army also has its own nurse researchers and other nurse specialists.

In terms of continuing education and advancement, I've been able to attend many leadership courses, like courses in head nurse leadership, combat casualty care, trauma nurse care, etc. I'll be able to retire in 20 years with full benefits. I love to be able to serve both clinically and administratively. With the experience and training that the Army has provided me, I'm able to function in various capacities, adapting confidently to my job as an Army Nurse Corps officer. Like I said, we're multitaskers.

What is it like to perform as a nurse on the battlefield?
When I was in Iraq for a year, I served as an operating room nurse in a combat support hospital. This is the first definitive care that a wounded soldier receives after receiving first aid and being stabilized on the battlefield. Battlefield nursing has come a long way, and we provide excellent care before the wounded are forwarded to our hospitals in Germany or here in the United States.

Is the Army up to date on healthcare technology?
Yes! Our healthcare system uses the most sophisticated modern technology. Consultation with recognized experts from both military and civilian practice is an integral part of patient care. This is a highly professional and challenging medical environment. The Army offers a multitude of opportunities for professional growth, including serving as faculty in one of our graduate medical education programs, which are some of the finest in the country.

How do you care for burn patients in combat support hospitals?
We did see a lot of burns while I was in the combat zone and we cared for our burn patients in the operating room. We have designated ICUs that we use for burn victims and we can separate out burn patients as needed. Our U.S. soldiers are then transferred to CONUS (Continental United States) or Germany for further care.

How do you handle the stress of treating battle-related trauma?
We have Army psychiatrists who debrief the staff after every mass casualty. Personally, I handle it by blocking it off and treating each casualty just like someone I would see at home in our military treatment facility. We treat all casualties the same way as they come into our operating room.

I have great support from my family and friends. We talk about it, but I don't hold onto it like a bad experience or a traumatic memory. What we see on the battlefield is unlike what you might see at home in a trauma hospital. While you might see a gunshot wound or stabbing in an ER in L.A., for example, the wounds we see in battle are totally different — often once-in-a-lifetime experiences for a clinician. We see these as very unique learning experiences for us, and that learning assists us in helping the next soldier who has a similar wound or condition.

What are your broader career plans?
I'll attend intermediate-level education (ILE) to be competitive for the next promotion to lieutenant colonel. Clinically, I'm happy with my current status, but I may return to school in order to pursue my master's degree as a family nurse practitioner (FNP). The Army has a program for long-term health education training for their Army Nurse Corps officers.

What about your work drives you and feeds your spirit?
It's a privilege to be able to help my fellow soldiers and make a difference when they're in situations of trauma or crisis. It's also an honor to serve our country when I'm most needed, especially in times of war.

Keith Carlson, RN, BSN, has worked as a nurse since 1996 and maintained the popular nursing blog Digital Doorway since 2005. He offers expert professional coaching for nurses and nursing students at www.nursekeith.com.



Email migration






Important Notice!
PaYS Enterprise Email Migration Scheduled

In support of Army efforts to reduce cost across all commands, the Fort Knox garrison is currently executing a phased update of their email application.  Through the remainder of 2012 and into 2013 the Windows Operations team will be converting from the current command structured email system over to the Army Enterprise Email system. What does that mean to the Army PaYS Program, Soldiers and partners? At some point during this implementation all current email addresses used by the staff of the PaYS program are scheduled to change. Presently we are targeted for the second week of December for our implementation. This change over will affect the helpdesk, marketing analysts, operations, and marketing coordinator. PaYS partners can expect an e-mail from their marketing analyst from their enterprise email account once the migration is complete. The good news is that the old @usaac.army.mil email address will forward to the enterprise address for up to 6 months after the migration. Please bear with us during this transition. Through it all we expect there will be no interruption of service. Email migration

TwitterPaYS Program on Twitter

As the Army PaYS Social Media Division continues to ascend, in the hopes of bringing better awareness of the Army PaYS Program to a larger social media audience the program initiated a Twitter account. The Army PaYS Facebook Page has seen tremendous growth and outreach in the past year with over 6,000 fans. We are hoping for a similar response to our Twitter account, a consistent following. The Army PaYS Facebook page remains the premier outlet for recruiters to inform their Soldiers about how the program works, and to highlight the kind of interaction we maintain with our Partners.
