The purpose of the Boston Post is dedicated support to our nation and the advancement of the science of military engineering. The Post strives to maintain and build on the proud and successful traditions and heritage that our nation's military engineering community has established by conducting various programs and activities that contribute to this purpose.
The objective of the Boston Post is to help the engineering and environmental professions, the construction industry, and the many federal and state agencies achieve their respective goals. The Post accomplishes this help by promoting the natural linkage between the civilian and military engineering, environmental, and construction industries for their mutual benefit. The Post additionally accomplishes this aim through supporting education in engineering and the environmental sciences through its scholarship program, its tutoring and mentoring programs, and by continuing education of its professional membership.

The Post encourages its membership to be active in their communities through application of their professional skills, talents and experience.

The Post prepares for the challenges of the future through development of emergency response capability for both natural disasters and military mobilization.
