“Who is staring at the sea is already sailing a little.”

-Paul Carvel 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.

This issue of DEFCON 1 comes to you from the shores of the Menominee River in Marinette, Wisconsin.

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.

***  Vietnam War Surface Action Exhibit to Debut at Navy Museum on 23 June

DEFCON 1 subscribers in the Washington, DC area are invited to join Naval Historical Foundation members at the ribbon-cutting for the Navy Museum’s newest exhibit, “Into the Lion’s Den!”  that tells the story of the August 1972 night time surface action in Haiphong Harbor.  This event will occur at 11:30 am on Saturday, 23 June. The display features a replica of the armored bridge of heavy cruiser Newport News which led cruiser Providence and destroyers Robison and Rowan into Haiphong for a short but intensive bombardment of harbor facilities, and then dealt with the excitement of a North Vietnamese PT boat attack.  Museum visitors will hear actual sound-powered phone reports recorded during that action as part of the well-scripted story of the raid and will see, hear and feel the effects of the Newport News  8-inch and 5-inch gunfire as they stand in the red-lit bridge behind the officer of the deck, phone talker, helmsman and lee helmsman decked out in combat dress.  The Seventh Fleet Commander at the time, retired CNO Admiral James L. Holloway III, was embarked in Newport News during the raid and will be on hand to provide remarks.    This completion of this exhibit, honoring surface warriors who fought on the Tonkin Gulf gun line, has been timed to follow DoD’s Memorial Day kickoff of the 50th anniversary commemoration of the Vietnam War.  Refreshments will precede the ribbon-cutting that will occur in the Building 70 Cold War Gallery annex to the National Museum of the United States Navy at the Washington Navy Yard.  To ensure we have everyone on the Navy Yard access list and have plenty of food for all guests, please RSVP to attend the event at http://www.navyhistory.org/event/nhf-annual-meeting-2012/ .

A message from the city of Boston

 

We are excited to be welcoming the ships of the War of 1812 Bicentennial Commemorations for the July 4th week. The international tall ships, active Navy ships, and ships of America’s coalition partners will be on display in Boston and will serve as the centerpiece for the commemoration festivities. The tall ships remind us of the vital role that our own USS Constitution played in The War of 1812, which was the last war fought under sail. We are truly looking forward to a successful event in partnership with Operation Sail and the US Navy for this historic milestone.
