“I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”
–  Robert McCloskey

Welcome to the latest edition of the number one Defense Career Opportunities Newsletter, “DEFCON-1,” a networking newsletter featuring job opportunities and career advice for those who are part of the global defense, aerospace and security industry. 

Your company’s jobs can be listed here when you share them with me.  Please ask your Director of HR to send me your company’s most pressing job hiring priority each week.  Make sure your recruiting manager subscribes to DEFCON 1.

Please share these opportunities and refer this network to your friends in the defense industry.  They can subscribe for free when they send a blank a-mail to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

If you are seeking employment and want to pitch yourself before hiring managers in the defense industry, send me (lundquist989@cs.com) your pitch and I’ll post, one at a time (so there might be a queue) and always first. 

Transitioning, or changing your e-mail address?  Don't forget to change your DEFCON – 1 subscription.  To unsubscribe, send a blank e-mail from the old account to DCO-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then a blank e-mail from your new account to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

This is a cooperative network.  That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to share.  When you learn about a job opportunity in the defense sector, such as a position that comes open with your company, you send me the title, organization, location, and a brief description; link; or contact information, and I’ll share.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

Hi, Ned.

Good seeing you the other week. if it's not too late for this week's 
JOTW, here's the info about my Jan. 19 book signing. Thanks!

Brad

Book signing. “No Higher Honor: Saving the USS Samuel B. Roberts in 
the Persian Gulf” (Naval Institute Press, 2006) by Bradley Peniston. 
Foreword by Adm. (ret.) William J. Crowe.

7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 19.
Borders Books, 6701 Frontier Dr., Springfield, VA 22150
(Near the Springfield Mall, just south of I-495.)

The book tells the story of the USS Samuel B. Roberts, a small U.S. 
warship dispatched to the Persian Gulf in 1988. Well-led and well-
trained, its crew had a perilous mission: to safeguard oil tankers 
through a combat zone that had turned them into targets. On 14 April,
an Iranian mine ripped open the Roberts' engineroom, ignited fires on four decks, and plunged the ship into darkness. With seawater rising 
around their boots, the crew fought fire and flooding into the night.  Four days later, the U.S. retaliated, sinking a half-dozen Iranian warships and boats in the world's biggest surface battle since World War II. (There's more at
