“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

–Maria Robinson

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, now serving more than 800 subscribers. DEFCON 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.

Invitation: Center for Naval Analyses Book Event: November 22nd at 2:00pm with Norman Friedman, author of Unmanned Combat Air Systems

As part of CNA's continuing efforts to stimulate and enhance knowledge and debate on important current naval issues, Dr. Norman Friedman—a well-known and internationally respected naval and defense analyst and historian specializing in the intersection of technology and national strategy—will present key findings from his latest book Unmanned Combat Air Systems: A New Kind of Carrier Aviation, and lead a discussion on those findings, in the CNA boardroom on Monday, 22 November from 1400-1600. In this new book, Dr. Friedman argues that the U.S. Navy’s Unmanned Combat Air System aircraft (UCAS) currently in development will transform naval aviation, extending its reach while dramatically reducing its cost.

*** Chairman's Corner: Marine Corps Birthday, Nov. 10

By Navy Adm. Mike Mullen

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

WASHINGTON, Nov. 9, 2010 – For 235 years, United States Marines have earned a privileged place in our hearts. For we know that when there is a tough job to do, we can “send in the Marines,” knowing that they will get the job done.

From Iwo Jima to Inchon, from Khe Sanh to Kandahar, Marines have always been ready to respond whenever and wherever the Nation calls, prepared to meet any challenge or foe, from sea to shore and beyond.

As long as the world is an unstable place, Marines will continue to fight and prevail with the high standards befitting their title — and with the spirit of the Corps that is in the DNA of every warrior privileged to wear the eagle, globe, and anchor.

To every Marine I say thank you. Thank you for your willingness to make the most profound commitment someone can make — to dedicate yourself completely to your service and your country. I also want to extend a special thanks to your families as well. The Marine Corps simply couldn't be what it is without the extraordinary love and support of our Marine Corps families.

This week, in gatherings large and small, you will come together to honor the rich heritage of the Corps and the proud legacy of the Marines who have gone before you. On this occasion, a grateful Nation commends your service and joins you in celebration.

On behalf of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Happy Birthday and Semper Fidelis!
