— Theodore Roosevelt

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.

*** 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

*** Miles Wiley sends: The Washington Post reported that Colonel Marv
Harris passed away on December 9, 2011, after a long illness. Donations
can be given to the MOAA Scholarship Fund.

Ned’s comment: Marv Harris was at the Air Force’s Public Affairs office
when I was working for the DoD news desk. He was a familiar face
passing through the news desk area, always with a smile and never too
self-important not to share something we needed to know. In retirement
he ran the very successful Military Officer magazine, which I receive as
a member of the Military Officers Association of America.

*** This is cool video of the F-35 VSTOL variant launching and
recovering onboard USS Wasp. This is a terrific capability. The
unknown at this point is how to manage the exhaust heat on the flight
deck.

*** 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.
