DEFCON 1 newsletter for April 12, 2023

Issue # 795


This edition of DEFCON 1 comes to you from Springfield, Virginia.


*** 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.


***  Sign up for regular free delivery of this newsletter through Google Groups by sending an email to Ned at


***  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.

***  Registration is now open to attend the 2023 Battle of Midway Dinner.


2023 marks the 81st Anniversary of the Battle of Midway. On June 4th 1942, a vastly outnumbered and outgunned U.S. Fleet defeated the finest of the Imperial Japanese Navy in the waters off a small Pacific Atoll named Midway. Their daring combination of intelligence, tactics, courage and sacrifice forever changed the course of World War II and world history.


In 1999 then Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jay L. Johnson announced that beginning with the 2000 observance, June 4 would become as significant as Oct. 13 — the Navy’s birthday. “Twice a year, we will pause as a Navy to reflect upon our proud heritage and to build in all hands a renewed awareness of our tradition and history,” Johnson said.


Since 2002 (except in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID), Victory at the Battle of Midway has been celebrated on the battle’s anniversary with a formal dinner at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Virginia. This event is sponsored by a consortium of nonprofit Navy and Marine Corps-related Associations and Foundations, including the Surface Navy Association.


SECNAV is the invited guest speaker.  YNC Bill Norberg, a veteran of World War II who was the Captain’s phone talker on ENTERPRISE (CV-6) during the battle, recently turned 100 and his family has indicated he is doing well and plans to attend our dinner as he has in recent years.


The reception/dinner will be at 1800 on 4 June at the Army Navy Country Club.  Dinner is $100 per person now but will increase on 28 May to $125.  Details on the dinner (menu, parking, dress code, etc) are on the Battle of Midway Celebration website.
