Happy Thanksgiving!

“If you wait to do everything until you're sure it's right, you'll probably never do much of anything.”

– Win Borden

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.

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.

*** Surface Warships 2012:

Exploring the Future of Global Surface Combatant Fleets

In a highly uncertain strategic environment, the ability to use the majority of the world's surface, and reach most of its population makes maritime forces those of choice for the world's main actors and their allies – and surface warships are key components of such forces. Their need to police the oceans against the dual threats of terrorism and piracy make surface warship programmes a crucial and indispensable part of the future maritime environment.

Surface Warships will provide the ideal environment for industry and naval professional to discuss innovative future designs and the need to keep current vessels battle ready through capability upgrades and refits.

23 – 25 January, 2012, Hyatt Regency, Paris, France

*** The Surface Navy Association (SNA) Scholarship program is an annual activity that SNA is very proud to offer to our members’ dependent children and spouses for undergraduate and graduate education. The academic achievements of our scholars are impressive and our current year’s renewal GPA (for those asking for a second through fourth year of support) was 3.64.

An SNA Scholar receives an academic scholarship based on demonstrated leadership, community service, academic achievement and commitment to pursuing higher educational objectives. Our criteria require that an applicant be a child, stepchild, ward or spouse of a current SNA member who is a Surface Warfare Officer or Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist or Officers and Enlisted members of the Coast Guard who’ve earned a permanent Cutterman’s pin, with three years of sea time.

With humble beginnings in 1995, with one scholarship for $500, we now award over $120,000 per year to 60 total individuals. In fact, since 2002 we have provided nearly three quarters of a million dollars in scholarship support to our members and families.

This past year, SNA received over 50 applications and was able to award scholarships to 17 of these outstanding new applicants. With your help, we can continue to grow this exceptional program. SNA is currently accepting donations for the scholarship fund online at:

https://www.navysna.org/SNA/ScholarshipCCDonation.asp

The Surface Navy Association greatly values any donation and all donations are tax deductible as SNA is a 501(c) 3 organization. As an example of the financial clout we can have together, if every member gave just $25, it would be enough to award over 20 fully-funded new scholarships. This is an important way for us to invest in the futures of the families of our nation’s Surface Warriors.
