Cecil Willis, Site Supervisor

Army National Guard/Navy

Cecil Willis had a calling -- to serve and protect. Even from an early age, he knew he was going to join the military. His dream of serving his country finally came to fruition. For more than 20 years, he worked for the Army National Guard and Navy as an Operations Specialist and Senior Chief.

Stationed all over the United States, from Georgia and Arkansas to California and Rhode Island, Cecil received more than 25 medals and ribbons for his dedicated service. As an Operations Specialist aboard U.S. Navy combat vessels, Cecil was responsible for collecting, evaluating and rapidly disseminating sensitive information used in tactical decisions made by the command and control stations. He also operated a variety of computer-interfaced detection, tracking and height-finding radars and assisted in the control of landing craft during amphibious assaults.

Cecil joined Allied Universal as a Site Supervisor because he felt it was the perfect segue after his career in the military.

“Allied Universal is a terrific company to work for because the company recognizes the sacrifices that veterans have made and provides us with duties similar to the military,” said Cecil. “I truly enjoy the positive work environment and professionalism from all levels of management.”

Looking ahead, Cecil hopes to work his way up the ladder at Allied Universal with the goal of utilizing his operational and tactical skills to ultimately continue to serve and protect. In his spare time, he is the pastor for the nonprofit organization Feed My Sheep Church.
