Welcome to the Scott Field Post.
The Scott Field Post is 1 of over 100 Posts and Field Chapters from around the world that comprise the National Society of American Military Engineers (SAME). Our mission is to build leaders and lead collaboration between government and industry, developing multi-disciplined solutions to national security infrastructure challenges. Some of these challenges include natural and man-made disasters and acts of terrorism both at home and abroad. 2020 was a prime example of this resilience as we as an organization, industry and nation continued to move in a forward trajectory. SAME is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.
The values of SAME include Integrity, Patriotism, Public Service, National Security, Technical Competence, Excellence and Environmental Stewardship. At the Scott Field Post, we exhibit these values by supporting monthly luncheon meetings attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list and on our website. In addition, our Post will be hosting 3 main events this year. In the spring we will host our annual golf outing to support our scholarship program for students entering into science and engineering fields at accredited universities. The summer is always a busy time of year at our post as we host our SAME STEM summer camp. This is 1 of 7 camps offered nationwide to high school students interested in exploring the amazing opportunities STEM has to offer. Lastly, in November we will host a joint Trivia Night with the St. Louis Post to support a Veterans organization.
In addition to all the above activities and events, we are also supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer, which also promotes the interests and goals of our society and its members. Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME Scott Field Post membership.
