“I to the world am like a drop of water

That in the ocean seeks another drop,

Who, falling there to find his fellow forth,

Unseen, inquisitive, confounds himself.”

– William Shakespeare

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.

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. Although, for a small consideration you can encourage me to send a message on your behalf to this list.

*** George Sirian:

Ned,

Stop the presses! Are you the link that binds the universe???

The Surface Navy Association gives an award each year — the George Sirian Award. My father, a retired Navy Captain, is a descendant of George Sirian. If I have my family history right, Sirian is the longest-known Navy service member and the only person known to have served three tours aboard the USS Constitution.

My parents, Tom and Pamm Forbes, will be at the SNA conference in Boston at the same time you are there. Please try to seek them out. They will be presenting the Sirian Award.

Your newsletter has been a boon to my career and I have enjoyed seeking selected opportunities through JOTW. Keep up the awesome Nedworking with a tip from me!

Heather Murphy

SouthpawFinePhotos.com

Pinal County Communications Director

(I’ll be in Boston to cover the presentation of the Sirian Award.

I grew up in Boston, and my father was a Naval officer (it's how he met my mother…a great story, founded upon blood of all things). As a boy we would go to the Boston Navy Yard in Charleston for dinner at the Officers Club frequently. It was such a treat. And we would park next to Constitution and I would gaze at her, or quickly run aboard. My brother is eight years older than me, and he also became a Naval officer, so he would usually tell me something important that big brothers seem to know, especially one destined to go to sea. Once in a while my Dad would tell me to go aboard one of the ships at the Navy Yard and salute the flag and then salute the OOD and say “Request Permission to Come Aboard, Sir!” It worked everytime.

Tell Tom and Pamm to save a seat for me at lunch on Friday.

I want to have them help me with the historical connections that might make this story really good.

Yes, Heather, it is a small world, and I am at the center of it all. And so, it would appear, are you.

Ned)

*** A Petty Officer Second Class, First Class and a Chief are off the ship together for lunch. While crossing a park they come upon an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out in a puff of smoke. The Genie says, “I usually only grant three wishes, so I'll give each of you just one.”

“Me first!” says the Petty Officer Second Class. “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, a beautiful woman at my side and not a care in the world.” Poof! He's gone.

“Me next!” says the First Class. “I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of pina coladas and a beautiful woman.” Poof! He's gone.

“You're next,” the Genie says to the Chief.

The Chief says, “I want those two back on the ship right after lunch.”
