“Conscience is the root of all true courage; if a man would be brave let
him obey his conscience.”
– James Freeman Clarke

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. 

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.

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

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.

Note:  Last week I said a portable DVD player costs about $10o, and that
GWC wantss to be able to issue one to each patient when they check into
Bethesda.  I also stated that wed raised $3,800 so far.  We now have
about $6,000!  So my objective is to purchase a higher quality unit that
may cost more than $100, and ensure that it includes an adapter,
headset, etc.  Thanks to all of you for helping us.

***  DEFCON – 1 Safety Violation of the week:

When it comes to ladders, two is not better than one.
http://www.safetycenter.navy.mil/photo/archive/archive_201-250/photo217.htm

***  From Carl Lundquist in Charleston:

143 years ago this past week the Confederate submersible Hunley sank the
USS Housatonic in Charleston Harbor in an action that saw the loss of
both ships.  The wreckage of Hunley was discovered in the 1990s and the
sub was raised and delivered to a high-tech preservation and archeology
facility.  Slowly and painstakingly, all accretions of mud and marine
growth, human remains and artifacts have been removed.  Several
mysteries have been solved, but many questions remain unanswered,
including the ultimate question of how and why Hunley was actually lost.

Hunley is now in the midst of a preservation process to stabilize the
hull structure and prevent further deterioration.  Its eventual move to
a museum is still years away.

There a million stories attached to the Hunley and its preservation.
For a start, click a few links.

In this case, one of the best sources for general information is the
often-suspect Wikipedia.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.L._Hunley

Two other good sites are linked below, “Friends of the Hunley” is a
great site, but requires membership.
