    I have a friend who worked for this pub and he loved it.

    Of course, it seems over the years I've seen this opening come up a few times. So not sure if there are issues or if people are just leaving for promotions and what-not.

    Man, there was a time when I would have given my left nut for a job there.

    I had an experience relating to my submitting materials to them, and their response, that always struck me as odd. Still, would be a decent gig.

    I don't know if Stars and Stripes is going through a major expansion or if they just have a lot of turnover, but they've advertised at least a half-dozen jobs on journalismjobs.com since mid-September, split pretty evenly between D.C. and overseas.
