“They had no right to win. Yet they did, and in doing so they changed the course of a war. Even against the greatest of odds, there is something in the human spirit – a magic blend of skill, faith and valor – that can lift men from certain defeat to incredible victory.”

– Walter Lord (Author, from Battle of Midway inscription on World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.)

“Movement generates surprise and surprise gives impetus to movement.”

– Liddell Hart

“A military man can scarcely pride himself on having smitten a sleeping animal. It is more a matter of shame, simply, for the one smitten.”

– Admiral Yamamoto

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. DECFON 1 brings you job opportunities every week, and counts on members like you to submit job listings to share and post in this newsletter.

Help the network grow. Sign up a friend. They can join for free simply by sending a blank email to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

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. This is a cooperative network. That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to 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 cannot do this for you.

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