Please pardon the cross postings:

This is the THIRD time we've announced this position -- Twice those who accepted decided not to take the position in the end.

Why?  We are not certain.   

If you need to chat w/ someone about Guam, we are willing to put you in touch w/ a Navy Librarian.  

To be clear -- I'm not the selecting official.  I'm merely passing on news and trying to help recruit.  I'll be posting this to major job boards as well.
