“Live your life, do your work, then take your hat.”

– Henry David Thoreau

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.

*** From Mar-Ex News:

On June 09, 2009 at around 1400 hrs in calm sea state, AD22 launched its Starboard lifeboat with a crew compliment of 7 persons for a periodic sea trial test. The lifeboat was successfully launched and sailed for 20 minutes. At the conclusion of the test, the lifeboat was re-connected to the davit pendant lines for recovery and stowing. After doing a short load test out of the water, the boat was winched / hoisted by the crew. When the lifeboat was approximately 2 feet from stowing position, the aft pendant hook inadvertently released causing the lifeboat to swing on the foreword pendant, which also released causing the lifeboat to fall in the sea from a height of 65 feet.

The investigation to determine the cause of the accidental release in progress. One person been declared dead upon arrival to the hospital, one in critical condition, and five with various injuries.

See the video.
