About The
Guam Post

Buenas yan Håfa ådai!

We welcome you to the Guam Post of the Society of American Military Engineers. Currently, our Post is comprised of 120+ Individual Members, 160+ Sustaining Members, 41 Sustaining Member companies and a total membership of approximately 280 persons with a mixture of active duty, reserve, civil service, architects, engineers, contractors and vendors.

Located nearly 3,000 miles west of Hawaii, Guam boasts the westernmost point of U.S. soil. That very fact has continued to highlight the strategic importance of Guam for our National Defense. The military investment continues to rise and the future looks to be exciting and full of challenges for the architectural, engineering and construction community!

The Guam Post is active in the local community and in the local economy. Through our Charlie Corn Scholarships, we offer up to $30,000 in scholarships each year to benefit regional (Guam, CNMI, Palau and Micronesia ) students interested in architecture or engineering. Our members are closely connected with the Guam Chamber of Commerce, Guam Contractor’s Association, Guam Society of Professional Engineers, Rotary, and many other agencies and organizations on the island.

Although DoD budgets are shrinking, exciting times lie ahead for Guam and the Guam Post. As the place “where America’s day begins,” Guam plays a pivotal role in the security and defense of U.S. interests in the Pacific. From Andersen Air Force Base in the north to the Naval Base complex at Apra Harbor and the future Marine Corp Base to the northeast, the military mission on the island is growing.  The military spending associated with the relocation of Marines from Okinawa to Guam has been established and the design/construction has begun.  The future looks bright for government agencies, the engineering community and contractors alike.

We hope that you will join us as we will need a strong team to build the road that lies ahead for Guam's Infrastructure and SAME is taking point!!!
