I work at NSLC Det. Norfolk, managing Combat Systems PMS (Guns & Displays). My office is currently looking for two individuals with networking background (FC/IT/ET) and Counter-Measures experience (EW/CT). This is a contractor job with the potential for a permanent GS position(it worked for me ). This is one of those little unadvertised opportunities that pop-up once-in-awhile during the networking process. Its a desk job with occassional travel. If any retired or retiring Chiefs are interested, they can contact me at
