RVP and Rhein Main Post members receive awards

On October 2011, a recognition ceremony took place in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Europe District Headquarters in Wiesbaden, Germany to honor distinguished members of the Rhein Main Post. Col. Scott Jarvis, SAME Europe Regional Vice President (RVP) awarded three RVP medals and seven RVP coins to deserving members for years of outstanding, dedicated service to SAME.

The event was long overdue for one of the most consistently productive Posts in the European Region. “SAME is alive and well in Europe thanks in great part to the efforts and accomplishments of the Rhein Main Post members that we recognized today,” stated Col. Jarvis.

Rhein Main Post was recently named the Top Small Post for 2011 and will receive the award at the upcoming Joint Engineer Training Conference (JETC) in May.

  • Bernd Diehl Diehl has been a Rhein Main Post Individual and Board Member since 1982. He has held the Sustaining Member Chair position since 1999.
