Hi Ned,

Do you no longer send out the JOTW emails? I don’t seem to be getting them. Let me know, thanks!

(Yes, and your email address is still active, which means you should be getting it.  Check you spam or junk mail.  In the meantime, you can read JOTW at www.nedsjotw.com every week.)

 

***  Out for Blood

The pursuit of life for the wounded on the fighting fronts of World War II

by Anastasia Kirby Lundquist

 

Blood and plasma may be the greatest gift of the “Greatest Generation”-their life’s blood given back at home for the wounded on the fighting front. They sent more than a million pints to war! And we will never know how many men and women walk the world today – or will do so in generations to come – because the life of a father or grandfather was saved by one of those gifts of a blood donor during World War II.

 

A radio show called Life to the Front, broadcast weekly over WEEI, the Columbia Broadcasting System’s New England network outlet in Boston, helped keep alive the connection between the home front and the fighting fronts.

 

Each week the broadcast was dedicated “To all the men of the armed forces of the United States… who – on every fighting front in the world – daily risk their lives in the service of their country……that they might live.”

 

Out for Blood includes first-hand accounts of actual participants in some of the war’s toughest battles, and features actual scripts from Life to the Front.

If in between juggling six projects on deadline, you ever find yourself stopping to wonder, “How’d they do that?” this just might just be the perfect job for you.

 

Kiewit Bridge & Marine is looking for a deadline-oriented writer-editor to work on proposals, marketing materials, and our employee magazine. The position is part of a highly collaborative, creative team of proposal managers, writers, and graphic designers responsible for creating multi-million—or multi-billion—dollar proposals.

YOU

 

We’re looking for someone who can translate complex technical concepts into easily accessible prose and then switch gears and turn out some punchy and persuasive marketing copy. The right person is self-motivated, has tons of initiative and flexibility, and can jump into a scrum of strong personalities as a voice of authority on language.
