Here is a message from Christopher Holshek.

Protect the People, with which I am associated at the program management level, is looking for some retired/inactive people with CA and/or FAO backgrounds to be considered for teams for short-term contract opportunities to help train both U.S. and partner nation forces on multilateral regional civil-military engagement and other peace and stability operations topics. This includes Regionally Aligned Forced and UN Troop Contributing Countries. PTP is teamed with General Dynamics (GDIT), which is now receiving a bunch of task orders to that effect and we need to collect resumes to plug into the roster.
No guarantees, of course, but it could certainly be of great benefit for the many members of both the Civil Affairs Association (http://www.civilaffairsassoc.org/) and Foreign Area Association (http://www.faoa.org/).
