*** Let’s get to the jobs:

*** From long-time JOTW subscriber Carter Langston, ABC, 1stLT, US Army:

Hi, Ned. And “hello” to my JOTW friends/colleagues from the sun-kissed sands of Afghanistan.

I have a few public affairs jobs to share with the network. Despite the confusing titles on a few of the jobs, these positions are about engaging key leaders and measuring communication effectiveness. If I had the confidence that my wife and family wouldn't kill me for being away for another year, I would try to get one of these jobs myself.

Life in Afghanistan: Steak and Lobster night each week is nice, and the Beck's near beer teases the palate. Late night walks in the cold to the nearest latrine stinks, but the men and women who fight the good fight against terrorism each day deserve every bit of the public affairs support that we're providing.

If the JOTW community would be interested, I can provide a link to the “News of the Week from Afghanistan.” Let me know.

The contact for the attached jobs is Steven McDonald

Merry Christmas and Cheers!
