The Seattle Postwas chartered in 1920 - the same year the National Society of American Military Engineers was organized.
We have been awarded the Society's "Distinguished Post" award over 18 years, and achieved this award again in 2012-2013.
Membership includes all branches of the military (particularly representatives from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Navy's Engineering Field Activity Northwest, the Coast Guard's Facilities Design & Construction Center, N.O.A.A., and Public Health Service, as well as other federal, state, and local agencies that provide and utilize engineering, planning, architecture and construction services).
Our membership also includes the majority of the Northwest's major civilian engineer, planning, architectural, and construction firms that provide professional services to federal, state, and local agencies. Please browse our website and discover why SAME is a premiere society for today's engineer.
Good Afternoon All and a Special Message from our New England Regional Posts!The Society of American Military Engineers Boston (MA), Narragansett Bay (RI), and Piscataqua (NH/ME) Posts which make up the SAME New England Region, were deeply impacted by the events on Monday, April 15, 2013 at the Boston Marathon. Some members were impacted directly, and many more have extended family or friends who were impacted in some way by this terrible tragedy.
However, as our motto says, we are "BOSTON STRONG", and we are doing what we do when things get difficult; moving forward, helping those that need help, and growing even stronger.
Many of our local and regional SAME members know and do business with Bill Richard with EST Associates, of Needham, MA, whose young son was tragically killed, and whose wife and daughter were severely injured. In addition to extending our thoughts and prayers to the entire Richard family, members of the Boston, Piscataqua and Narragansett Posts have been exploring additional ways in which we can assist the family in their recovery.
The New England Posts became aware of a fund that was established in coordination with the family, and to show our support, we are providing a combined donation of $5,000 to the fund. We are bringing this to your attention and encourage other Posts, Member Firms, and individuals, regardless of their affiliation with SAME, to donate to this worthy cause. A link to the fund, which accepts online donations, is provided below:
The mission of the Society of American Military Engineers is to promote and facilitate engineering support for national security by developing and enhancing relationships and competencies among uniformed services, public and private sector engineers, and related professionals.
