– Ronald Reagan

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.

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.

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, but there
is no queue now) and always first.

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.

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.

***  Support this worthy  Surface Navy Association Greater Washington
Chapter effort:

Portable DVD Players for wounded Sailors and Marines
The Greater Washington Chapter of the Surface Navy Association Board of
Directors announces a worthwhile opportunity to help our injured Sailors
and Marines.

The chapter will purchase portable DVD players for the Sailors and
Marines recovering at Bethesda National Naval Medical Center.
This is follows last year's effort which resulted in the donation of
more than 400 DVD movies last spring.

Donations via credit card can made by completing the information below.
Checks (no cash, please) can be sent to the following address:

ATTN:  GWC Service Project
2550 Huntington Ave., Suite 202
Alexandria, VA  22303
To donate:  https://www.navysna.org/Events/dvd/dvddonation.asp

Note:  A portable DVD player costs about $100.  (Actually, a good one
costs more than that.)  We want to be able to issue one to each patient
when they check into Bethesda.  GWC has raised $3,800 so far.  Our goal
is $5,000 by 15 March.  We are working on getting a corporate discount
from several sources, so our collected funds can purchase gear for more
of our shipmates.

***  Good idea:

Ned,

Thanks for passing along this opportunity that will enable us, in some
small way, to help our wounded warriors. I've made my donation and
encourage all in the network to do so as well.

If I could ask you to pass along another worthy project, I'd be obliged.

The Naval Order of the United States is leading the drive to erect a
monument to the U.S. Navy at 'Utah Beach' in Normandy, France,
commemorating the Navy's participation in the greatest amphibious
invasion in history. The goal is to dedicate this Monument on June 6th,
D-Day, 2008. The US Navy is the only military service that does not have
a Memorial to the thousands of US sailors that participated, and the
many who made the supreme sacrifice, in the liberation of Europe
(http://www.navalorder.org/popup.htm).

Any assist you can provide in getting the word out is much appreciated.

Yours,

Tim O'Leary

***  From Dave Gai:

Ned,

From Dave Gai, retired Navy PAO:

Had a blast from the past last weekend at the home of one of my fellow
directors. Her husband and I are both former Sailors and Eagle Scouts.
In his 'I love me room' is displayed several rare patches including the
1969 National Jamboree Idaho, an event my oldest brother actually
attended. My family and I were camping outside Coeur d'Alene at the
time. Pitching our tent in a steady 30 kt wind was becoming hilarious.
As my other brother was hammering in the tent pegs and trying to impress
the teenage girls trying to pitch their tent next to us, he accidentally
hit his knee with the hammer. To this day I've never forgotten the huge
goose egg on his knee and the bigger bruise on his pride.

Here’s a posting for both DEFCON 1 and perhaps even the
Hospitality/Event Planning Jobs. We're also looking for a mid-level
communicator with a similar skill set. That PD should be out in the next
week. Thanks Ned.
