“I dip my pen in the blackest ink, because I'm not afraid of falling
into my inkpot.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

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. 

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.

***  You've all heard of the Air Force's ultra-high-security,
super-secret base in Nevada, known simply as “Area 51?”

Well, late one afternoon, the Air Force folks out at Area 51 were very
surprised to see a Cessna landing at their “secret” base. They
immediately impounded the aircraft and hauled the pilot into an
interrogation room.

The pilot's story was that he took off from Vegas, got lost, and spotted
the Base just as he was about to run out of fuel. The Air Force started
a full FBI background check on the pilot and held him overnight during
the investigation.

By the next day, they were finally convinced that the pilot really was
lost and wasn't a spy. They gassed up his airplane, gave him a
terrifying “you-did-not-see-a-base” briefing, complete with threats of
spending the rest of his life in prison, told him Vegas was that-a-way
on such-and-such a heading, and sent him on his way.

The day after that though, to the total disbelief of the Air Force, the
same Cessna showed up again. Once again, the MP's surrounded the
plane…only this time there were two people in the plane.

The same pilot jumped out and said, “Do anything you want to me, but my
wife is in the plane and you have to tell her where I was last night!”

***  Ballad of the PowerPoint Ranger:

(To the tune of “The Green Berets”)

Requests are made, from day to day,
Briefings held, and changes made.
Graphics slides, a must they say,
and PowerPoint is the only way.
Computers crash, and printers stall,
Overloading protocol.
Network's down and soldiers cry,
Briefing's late so heads will fly.
Pin PowerPoint Slides upon my chest,
Full-color slides, they look the best.
One Hundred Slides were made that day,
But only 3 were ever displayed.
A smile came on the General's face,
Slides were done and looked just great!
T'was up all night, worked really late,
Just to hear, the General state:
My soldier son, your slides were great,
Briefing's done, slides up to date.
One problem son, the color's wrong,
One more chance, or you go home.
So tell my mom, I've done my best.
Pin PowerPoint Slides on my chest.
One hundred slides were made that day,
But only 3 were ever displayed.
