“What shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his soul.”

- Mark 8:36

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.

*** Where can I find back issues:

Ned,

In the last couple of weeks you had a quote from Field Marshal(two l's?) Montgomery. It got away from me before I could copy it. Is there somewhere I can search for it (I am sure it is easily available and I will feel like a total dumkopf when you tell me where to go — metaphorically speaking).

Liked the one about animosity a lot as well!

Thank you.

Mary D.

(Back issues can be viewed at www.nedsjotw.com.)

And so it was! Found it! And as predicted, I am a dumkopf.

Thank you.

Mary D.

*** Meat on a stick:

Little old lady selling meat on a stick on the side of Magsaysay Boulevard at the Olongapo City Drainage Canal Bridge: “Barbecue! Barbecue!”

Ned: “What kind of meat is this?”

Little old lady: “Is pork.”

Ned: “What I wanted was monkey.”

Little old lady: (Leaning forward, nodding and whispering) “Ahhh, is really monkey.”

Ned: “What I really wanted is dog.”

Little old lady: “DOG?! (Spitting.) Too expensive!”

*** From Rodger Dana:

The Port of Richmond, CA has sold the MOCTOBI & QUAWPAW (ATF 110) to a firm named GENERAL PROPULSION (Texas). General Propulsion is advertising the ships for $465,000 each. If the ships don't sell,

several options are being studied such as refurbishing MOCTOBI using QUAPAW for parts, and scrapping both in Mexico. Nothing definite yet. I believe you can still GOOGLE EARTH the ships at the Port of Richmond, CA, but the ships will be relocated from the present location as a provision of the sale (supposedly for the back dock charges).

*** Luke AFB is west of Phoenix and is rapidly being surrounded by

civilization that complains about the noise from the base and its planes, forgetting that it was there long before they were.

The complaint:

“Question of the day for Luke Air Force Base: Whom do we thank for

the morning air show? Last Wednesday, at precisely 9:11 a.m., a tight formation of four F-16 jets made a low pass over Arrowhead Mall, continuing west over Bell Road at approximately 500 feet. Imagine our good fortune!

Do the Tom Cruise-wannabes feel we need this wake-up call, or were

they trying to impress the cashiers at Mervyns early bird special? Anyresponse would be appreciated.”

The response:

Regarding “A wake-up call from Luke's jets”: On June 15, at precisely

9:12 a.m., a perfectly timed four-ship flyby of F-16s from the 63rd Fighter Squadron at Luke Air Force Base flew over the grave of Capt. Jeremy Fresques.

Capt. Fresques was an Air Force officer who was previously stationed at Luke Air Force Base and was killed in Iraq on May 30, Memorial Day. At 9 a.m. on June 15, his family and friends gathered at Sunland Memorial Park in Sun City to mourn the loss of a husband, son and friend.

Based on the letter writer's recount of the flyby, and because of the jet noise, I'm sure you didn't hear the 21-gun salute, the playing of taps, or my words to the widow and parents of Capt. Fresques as I gave them their son's flag on behalf of the President of the United States and all those veterans and servicemen and women who understand the sacrifices they have endured. A four-ship flyby is a display of respect the Air Force pays to those who give their lives in defense of freedom. We are professional aviators and take our jobs seriously, and on June 15 what the letter writer witnessed was four officers lining up to pay their ultimate respects.

The letter writer asks, “Whom do we thank for the morning air show”? The 56th Fighter Wing will call for you, and forward your thanks to the widow and parents of Capt. Fresques, and thank them for you, for it was in their honor that my pilots flew the most honorable formation of their lives. Lt. Col. Scott Pleus CO 63rd Fighter Squadron Luke AFB
