Are you a comic creator? Have you always wanted to be a military contractor? Well now you can be both!
The U.S. Special Operations Command out of Fort Bragg is looking for a comic book series (to be published in Arabic) "based on the security forces, military and police, in the near future in the Middle East in cooperation with the Ministries of Interior of some of those countries."
The solicitation continues: "In order to achieve long-term peace and stability in the Middle East, the youth need to be reached. One effective means of influencing youth is through the use of comic books. A series of comic books provides the opportunity for youth to learn lessons, develop role models and improve their education."
If you don't know Arabic, the military will happily provide a translator for you.
See Solicitation Number H92239-05-T-0026 for all of the details.
