U.S. Army and Aetos Systems Partnership Agreement
Huntsville, AL. — The U.S. Army and Aetos Systems are scheduled to sign a partner-ship agreement September 19, 2019, as part of the U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program at 2:00 p.m. at 4747 Bob Wallace Ave. Huntsville, AL 35805.
The PaYS Program is a strategic partnership between the Army and a cross section of private industry, academia and state and local public institutes. The U.S. Army PaYS Program guarantees Soldiers two job interview and possible employment after their ser-vice in the Army. The PaYS Program provides America’s youth with the unique oppor-tunity to simultaneously serve their country and prepare for their future.
The PaYS program is designed to help Soldiers prepare for a career after the Army by connecting them with employers who understand the skills, discipline and work ethic that military service members bring to a business. This program is part of a long-term U.S. Army effort to help Soldiers forge professional relationships with businesses and encourage business owners to look to the Army as a plentiful and reliable recruiting source. Since PaYS began in 2000, more than 858 employers have partnered with the program.

Silver Snoopy Award
Congratulations to Fred Kepner on our OHC contract for receiving a Silver Snoopy Award from NASA in July. The Silver Snoopy is a prestigious and highly coveted award. From NASA:
"Of all the SFA Awards, the Silver Snoopy best symbolizes the intent and spirit of Space Flight Awareness. An astronaut always presents the Silver Snoopy because it is the astronauts' own award for outstanding performance, contributing to flight safety and mission success. Fewer than 1 percent of the aerospace program workforce receive it annually, making it a special honor to receive this award.
The award is a sterling silver Snoopy lapel pin that has flown on a Space Shuttle mission, plus a certificate of appreciation and commendation letter for the employee, both signed by the astronaut."
Fred received his award from astronaut Shannon Walker
