“Duty is the most sublime word in our language. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more. You should never wish to do less.”

– Robert E. Lee

 

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.  DECFON 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.

 

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

***  Inquiring minds want to know

 

Ned:

I was talking with the owner of the building in which my office is located and he remarked that nuclear aircraft carriers  go something like 20 years between refuelings. One think led to another and we then got to wondering: on a ship of this size (Nimitz Class, basically a floating city):  in the galley, do Navy cooks cook with gas or electric?

I know this seems dumb, but what do you expect from a couple of landlubbers? 

Hope your UK trip went well.

Mark Sofman

 

(Ready for this?  Steam.  Actually, there are electric grills and ovens.  Steam kettles and steam heated serving lines are disappearing, but I'll be the carriers still have 'em.)

 

Okay, steam makes perfect sense when you have basically a perpetual heat source to create it, but what if the Captain or the OD  or a wing commander wants an omelet?  Does a cook do it in a frying pan or skillet over steam, on an electric coil or on a gas burner?

Mark

 

(What did you want in your omlet?)

 

Eggs, ham, cheez, shrooms, green peppers, bacon, onions
