    The U.S. Army and Dignity Health Mercy and Memorial Hospitals signed a partnership agreement on Thursday.

    The collaboration is part of the U.S. Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program.

    The PaYS Program is a joint effort between the Army and private industry, academia and federal, state and local institutes which guarantees soldiers a job interview and possible employment after they leave the service.

    PaYS helps soldiers prepare for a career after the Army by connecting them with employers who understand the skills, discipline and worth ethic that military service members bring to a business.

    “All the skills that they learn in the military – you know, not everything completely transfers over 100 percent – but I will say, a good majority of the skills that you learn in the military transfer extremely well into the civilian workforce,” Recruiting Battalion Commander Matthew Washburn said.
