Army Magazine and DMA jobs

ARMY magazine is hiring. We are looking for an experienced and skilled photojournalist to fill a senior writer job on the magazine staff.

This is not an entry-level position. We are looking for someone with a very particular set of skills who can jump in without needing constant adult supervision. Yes, that was stealing a line from Liam Neeson in the movie Taken.

If you know of anyone who might be interested, they can request an application packet by emailing armymag@ausa.org. We’ll send a job description, application and specific request to see examples of their work. We have set a deadline of January 23 for applications.

At least we tried…um, hoorah for the mail service?

From Don Knight:

 Six years ago on the Association’s behalf, I sent out some mailings to find some old USMCCCA members and get them back in as dues paying members.  That was in 2008.

I just received a returned letter from the USPS telling me they could not find Jay McDonald.  Did the postal service spend six years looking for this guy?  I am enclosing the envelope I received from the post office post-marked 12/06/14.

Come rain, snow, tornado or hurricane the mail always gets delivered, right?  In another six years they might have been able to find this guy!
