Thanks to all who joined us on Wednesday, September 16th for our special celebration of the 75th anniversary of our Post!  Our meeting included annual Post awards plus tributes to our past presidents and the many volunteers and members who have made our Post the dynamic, vibrant organization we are today.   We awarded scholarships to ten promising college students and learned about exciting new initiatives at SAME National by our SAME Executive Directory, Joe Schroedel. Thanks to all who helped make our inaugural meeting of the 2015-2016 year a success!


Congratulations to the leaders and members of the Baltimore Post!  Our Post has been selected by SAME National as the Top Large Post in the North Atlantic Region.  Our Post will be recognized at the Joint Engineer Training Conference at the Post Awards Breakfast in Houston in May.  Congratulations to everyone who leads and supports the activities of our Post!

The SAME Baltimore Post is interested in hearing from you, our members. Please take a few moments to answer the following anonymous survey. Your input will influence Post communication activities, monthly meeting topics, and general Post operations.

Thank you for your support of the Baltimore Post. We look forward to your response!




The Baltimore SAME Post, Education and Mentoring Committee awarded a total of 10 scholarships (Six new one year awards, one new  4-year award and  three continuing awards to existing 4-year awardees).  Awardees included students from Institutions within the footprint of the Post (UMD, UMBC, Morgan State University, Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and University of Delaware).  Consistent with our Mission, the students majors included Computer Science, Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Bio Engineering.  We have received “thank you” messages and emails from the awardees including letters of appreciation from the institutions (see below).

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 the Academy 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.
