NoVa Post honors Fellow


Nello Tortora_FellowSAME Northern Virginia (NoVa) Post hosted the Post’s Academy of Fellows Induction Ceremony on June 6, 2013 at the Fort Belvoir Officers’ Club in Virginia. The event was held as part of the Post’s monthly meeting.

SAME Vice President William A. Brown, Sr., P.E., Hon AIA, F.SAME, presided over the induction of Col. Aniello L. “Nello” Tortora, PMP, USA (Ret.). Col. Tortora retired from the U.S. Army last July after a 27-year career in uniform. His last assignment was as Commander of the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville.

Many of the Post’s members are not able to attend SAME HQ Academy of Fellows annual induction ceremony, making it a privilege to witness the ceremony and pledge of another distinguished Fellow – and to welcome Col. Tortora to the NoVA Post.

The Post’s meeting also included its annual Streamer Pinning Ceremony, Sustaining Member Recognition, 2012 Post Member Awards and a SAME update. For more information on NoVA Post activities, please go to or see the Post’s latest quarterly newsletter here.
