*** Mrs. Smith, a teacher called on Johnny to tell a personal story with a moral.

Johnny said, “My Uncle Ted was a Marine pilot during the war in Vietnam, one day his plane got hit by a missile and was going down. Uncle Ted grabbed a case of beer, a machine gun and a machete and bailed out. On the way down he drank the whole case of beer. As luck would have it he landed in a field and was surrounded by 100 Viet cong soldiers. He started shooting his machine gun and killed 70 of them before he ran out of ammunition. Then he grabbed the machete and killed 20 more before the machete blade broke. He then killed the last 10 with his bare hands.”

“Oh my God!” exclaimed Mrs. Smith, “What could the moral of that story possibly be?”

Johnny said, “The moral of that story is.. Don't mess with Uncle Ted when he's been drinking!”

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.
