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 visiting http://bit.ly/JOTWSubscribe and selecting DEFCON 1.

 

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.

 

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

***  Ceremonial christening and launch of Perry’s Longboat

 

You are cordially invited to join the Maritime Museum of Sandusky and the Perry Group- Friends of Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial for the ceremonial christening and launch of Perry’s Longboat.  The Longboat was commissioned by the Perry Group to be built for the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie.  The boat was constructed by John Riddle of Riddle Boat Works and is currently being finished at the Maritime Museum of Sandusky.

 

The christening and launch of Perry’s Longboat will be held at the Shelby Street Boat Ramp in downtown Sandusky, Ohio on Saturday June 15th at 10:00a.m.  It will coincide with the Maritime Museum’s Classic Boat Show at the Paper District Marina that same Saturday from 9am-5pm.  The Longboat will later be taken to Put-In-Bay for display at the Perry’s Victory International Peace Memorial and used in the Bicentennial Celebrations over Labor Day weekend.

 

Come join us and the local community in commemorating our history and the important role it played on a national scale in 1813.  This is a great opportunity to kick-off the Battle of Lake Erie Bicentennial Celebrations for 2013 and get a look at this beautiful Longboat before it sails into history!
