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.

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

***  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.
