Dear Scott Field Post Members,
I want to first thank you for the opportunity and confidence to lead our post for the 2022-23 year. I would also like to thank all those that volunteered in each of our post positions because without your involvement and support we would not be where we are today. We as a post continued to overcome the challenges of the global pandemic. We had a fantastic turnout for our January virtual meeting. It was an absolute pleasure to hear about some of the changes happening within our society. A big thanks to our SAME Executive Director, Brig. Gen. Joseph "Joe" Schroedel, P.E., F.SAME, USA (Ret.) for taking the time to truly connect with our post. I hope to continue this trend for 2022 and challenge you all to continue to support and help grow the post.
Your Post’s officers and committee chairs have been very productive planning for our programs and events. Of course, the planning includes something we’ve all gotten used to over this past few years - contingency plans! We will do our best to provide you all the benefits of membership you’ve enjoyed through the years while paying attention to the latest safety protocol. Stay tuned for more information regarding the upcoming meetings and events.
