U.S. Embassy in Iraq is the largest, most expensive embassy ever built. It employs 15,000 people and cost $750 million to build. The Embassy opened in January 2009 following a series of construction delays. The complex is heavily fortified, even by the standards of the Green Zone. Fortifications include deep security perimeters, buildings reinforced beyond the usual standard, and five highly guarded entrances.

The mission of the United States Embassy in Baghdad is to represent the United States of America to the Government of Iraq (GOI). The U.S. Ambassador (Chief of Mission (COM)) is the President’s representation to the GOI. The Embassy is located in the International Zone (IZ) in Baghdad. The compound consists of 104 acres and is the largest U.S. Embassy in the world.

The main dining facility cafeteria area on the Embassy Compound is a 3,000 square meter facility that currently has a feeding and seating capacity of roughly 2,500 personnel. This area does not include the various refrigerated vans and containers used for storage of frozen, chilled and dry storage of food, or supplies. Additional feeding capacity projects are being contemplated to accommodate personnel surges. The maximum occupancy on the BEC is 2600, while Camp Condor houses 1129 and has its own dining facility.

    Dear Friends and Colleagues.

    I am now seeking future employment hence this message to you all.

    I ask that if anyone may be in need of a person with my qualifications, training and experience within their organisation. As you can see by my profile which outlines my full work history, I have had numerous years experience within the security industry andVIP Protection believe that the skills I have obtained over the years could be an asset to any company or individual.

    Though in South Africa I am seeking contracts in Europe long/short term

    If anyone can help or know of anyone that may have a position I could fill please contact me on one of the emails address below.

    Take care and stay safe . [email protected]. Cell: +27712422798.

    To whom it may concern,

    Hello my name is Scott Edgar Jordan I am a Licensed Electrician & Contractor with LOGCAP IV experience that has been overseas for over seventeen months and have just been back in the United States for less than two months. During my time in Afghanistan I was doing electrical inspection and repairs per NEC specifications to provide a safe electrical basis for our military as well as civilian personal. I am comfortable working in a military or warzone to provide a safe environment for all of our soldiers and civilians. Based on my time back I’m rejuvenated and ready to return to advance my career in the electrical field, I was stationed in Afghanistan; however I am willing to relocate to open up possible venues. Please let me know if there is anything else that is needed.

    Thanks for your consideration.
