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.

According to Sandra Jones Zettersten, AIA, RA, Dipl.-Ing. Architektin, F.SAME, "It was great to have Col. Jarvis here to recognize so many of our dedicated members who have worked selflessly over the years to make our post what it is today. I am extremely proud to have such great people in this organization.”

On March 20, 2012, the SAME Sacramento Post sponsored the Sacramento Kings Military Appreciation Night to support the men and women in uniform who serve our country. The Sacramento Kings, an NBA team based in Sacramento, Calif., played against the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Post purchased 100 tickets, with more than 50 tickets designated for service members and their families from Beale Air Force Base, Travis Air Force Base and the National Guard. The remaining tickets were sold to Post members. A seating block in the premium lower reserve section at Power Balance Pavilion was reserved for service members.
The night was victorious for the Sacramento Kings as they earned a hard-fought victory over the visiting Grizzlies, with scores of 119 – 110. To conclude the night, Post and military service members were invited to walk to the center of the basketball court for a group photo immediately following the game. “The Sacramento Kings Military Appreciation Night event was a huge success for everyone involved,” said Doug Berwick, CH2M Hill, SAME Sacramento Post Director.
