Greetings and Welcome!
Welcome to the New Jersey Post of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME-NJ) the premier professional society to promote sustainable infrastructure and support the national defense. We help build strong professional networks that enhance capabilities delivered to owners, improve our business bottom line and imbue an esprit de corps to enrich our lives.
SAME was founded in 1920 when Congress realized our nation would be stronger if the government and the military preserved the professional networks with private industry forged during World War I. Almost 100 years later, those networks are as important as ever; those networks helped our peers in the uniformed service, government and private sector effectively respond to Super storm Sandy, one of costliest natural disasters in American history.
We invite all of our colleagues to join the Post or attend our events where we can learn, teach, lead, build a future and give back to the next generation of engineers, scientists and professionals that will protect our nation.
We will sponsor events throughout the year including support of the Small Business Community, golf outings, young member events, high school STEM events including Mathcounts, and the Jersey Junior Shore Science Symposium, and engaging in national councils to move our industry forward.
We are proud supporters of some of the premier military facilities in the nation including Joint Base McGuire Dix Lakehurst, Picatinny Arsenal, Naval Weapons Station Earle, US Coast Guard Training Center at Cape May and the many facilities of the Army and Air National Guard home to our citizen soldiers, the soul of our military mission.
Come out and join in. Getting together is more fun than ever since fans across New Jersey can all cheer on our favorite World Champions.
Go Eagles! Go Giants!
