“Justice and power must be brought together, so that whatever is just may be powerful, and whatever is powerful may be just.”

– Blaise Pascal

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, maritime, marine technology 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.

*** Naval History Seminar

Colleagues: Please join us on Tuesday 20 November for a presentation on

an event of importance to all Americans in this new, troubled century.

Lecture: “Pentagon 9/11” by Dr. Sarandis Papadopoulos, of the Naval

Historical Center's Contemporary History Branch, who was the Navy

co-author of the recently published history, Pentagon 9/11. That work

provides the most comprehensive account to date of the 11 September 2001 attack on the Pentagon and its aftermath, including unprecedented

details of the impact on the building and its occupants and the scope of the rescue, recovery, and care-giving effort. The narrative is based on firsthand accounts of survival, tragedy, and heroism drawn from hundreds of interviews. It records in compelling detail the destruction caused by American Airlines Flight 77 when it crashed into the building. He will also relate the epic struggle of the on-scene survivors and those individuals who led colleagues to safety, firefighters, security and medical personnel.

When: 12:00-1:00 on Tuesday 20 November 2007

Where: National Museum of the United States Navy, Bldg 76, Washington

Navy Yard

Walter Reed Army Medical Center officials want to remind those

individuals who want to show their appreciation through mail to include packages, letters, and holiday cards addressed to 'Any Wounded Soldier' or 'A Recovering American Soldier' that Walter Reed cannot accept these packages in support of the decision by then Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Transportation Policy in 2001. This decision was made to ensure the safety and well being of patients and staff at medical centers throughout the Department of Defense.

In addition, the U.S. Postal Service is no longer accepting “Any Service Member” or “A Recovering American Soldier” letters or packages. Mail to “Any Service Member” that is deposited into a collection box will not be delivered.

Instead of sending an “Any Wounded Soldier” letter or package to Walter Reed, please consider making a donation to one of the more than 300 nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping our troops and their families listed on the “America Supports You” website,

www.americasupportsyou.mil

Other organizations that offer means of showing your support for our

troops or assist wounded servicemembers and their families include:

http://www.usocares.org/

http://www4.army.mil/ocpa/tooursoldiers/

http://www.redcross.org

For individuals without computer access, your local military

installation, the local National Guard or military reserve unit in your area may offer the best alternative to show your support to our

returning troops and their families. Walter Reed Army Medical Center

will continue to receive process and deliver all mail that is addressed to a specific individual.

As Walter Reed continues to enhance the medical care and processes for

our returning service members, it must also must keep our patients and

staff members safe while following Department of Defense policy. The

outpouring of encouragement from the general public, corporate America

and civic groups throughout the past year has been incredible. Our

Warriors in Transition are amazed at the thanks and support they receive from their countrymen.

Hi Ned,

I receive your list weekly, and as a guy in the early stages of my career (reserve AF PAO and a PR industry guy with long(er) hair on the civilian side), your newsletter is helpful as industry intelligence and future opportunities.

*** While cruising at 30,000 feet, the C-141 Starlifter shuddered, and a passenger looked out the window.

“Good Lord!” he screamed, “One of the engines just blew up!”

Other passengers left their seats and came running over; suddenly the aircraft was rocked by a second blast as yet another engine exploded on the other side.

The passengers were in a panic now, and the Loadmaster couldn't maintain order. Just then, standing tall and smiling confidently, the pilot strode from the cockpit and assured everyone that there was nothing to worry about. His words and his demeanor seemed made most of the passengers feel better, and they sat down as the pilot calmly walked to the door of the aircraft. There, he grabbed a package from under the seats and began strapping it on his back.

“Say,” spoke up an alert passenger, “Isn't that a parachute?”

The pilot confirmed that it was.

The passenger went on, “But I thought you said there was nothing to worry about?”

“There isn't,” replied the pilot as a third engine exploded. “I'm going to get help.”
