Hello!

Saw this first posting:

1.) T/A Tech Writer, EB Groton Shipyard, Electric Boast Division,

General Dynamics, Groton, RI

I could be wrong, but I believe the job cited is located in one of two

places: Groton, CT or possibly in the Quonset yard in Quonset, RI, both of

which are Electric Boat (notice the removal of the S) divisions.

As someone who works extensively in both CT and RI, I am pretty sure the

Ocean State has not yet annexed Groton!

Thank you and best regards

Have you shipped off a box (or two) of school supplies to our U.S. forces in Kabul who are working with their colleagues with the British Army in supporting two orphanages and a school? This is pretty easy. And even some crayons will help.

I recommend a “Priority Mail” box from the U.S. Postal Service. If it fits, it ships, for one low flat-rate. How much school supplies can you fit in a box?
