The Society of American Military Engineers is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.
Our goal is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C fields so that we can prepare for and overcome natural and man made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.
The Houston Post accomplishes this goal locally by supporting monthly luncheon meetings and other professional/social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list and quarterly newsletter. We are supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer, which also promotes the interests and goals of our society and its members. Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME Houston Post membership.
Thank you for visiting my Society of American Military Engineers–Houston Galveston Post Team page!
I’ve had a love for running for over 25 years. When I was in the Army it was “encouraged” to run. Since I got out of the Army, I found that I actually enjoyed running voluntarily! Since then I’ve participated in one full marathon (1997 – Chicago), 6 half-marathons, approx. 20 sprint distance triathlons, and numerous 5k’s.
I’m very excited that I will be participating on September 20, 2020 in the Run Houston! University of Houston, 5k event while representing the SAME – Houston/Galveston Post.
SAME is an organization I’ve been involved with for over 20 years. It is a non-profit organization that focuses on bringing together the public and private sectors in the Architectural, Engineering, Construction fields and promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry. The Society is celebrating its 100-year anniversary this year. The SAME – Houston/Galveston Post commits to distribute approximately $20,000 in college scholarships annually, sending High School students to Engineering & Construction summer camps, supporting local and regional science fairs, as well as contributing donations to the Fisher House and the Houston Food Bank.
The reason I am doing this event is to help raise funds for these extremely worthwhile local causes.
I ask that you click the SPONSOR ME button on this page and contribute to help provide scholarships for students who wish to pursue a career in science, technology, engineering and math.
Contribute what you wish. Any amount will make a difference: $50, $100, $500 or other.
Thank you for your support!
