Congratulations on Distinguished Post Award - a Message from our President
Congratulations to all those who work hard making our Baltimore Post the best it can be! The Baltimore Post is being awarded the designation of Distinguished Post for 2012, which will be conferred at the National SAME Joint Engineer Training Conference in San Diego in May.
Thank you to those committees responsible for putting together programs to accomplish this milestone - especially Melissa Smith for leading the effort every month. Thank you to COL Anderson, Retd., for his leadership last year and also to Doug DeFazio for keeping on top of the membership. A special thank you to Amy Basehoar who writes the application for us every year.
This is a well-deserved recognition for our Post and a tribute to all those who contribute to make it happen.

We’re Looking for a Few Good Fellows
The SAME Academy of Fellows is a body of SAME members who
have rendered dedicated and outstanding service to SAME, to military
engineering, to engineering and related professions in general, and to their
community. Being accepted into the College of Fellows is a great distinction.
Somewhat less than 3% of the total SAME membership has been awarded this honor.
However, for members who have shown outstanding achievement and leadership
(which includes leadership by example), being
accepted into theAcademy of Fellows is not an unachievable goal, and the Society is sincere in its desire to ensure that deserving members are
granted this recognition. The selection process is not a competition. [more]
