    There is a Canadian lodge as well as a PHA lodge in Kandar. I have heard of PHA lodges at Bagrahm.

    It's been a few years but in 2009, Bagram had a Prince Hall lodge chartered out of Oklahoma.

    It's still there. I think it's Alpha Military Lodge #145, if I'm not mistaken. They do open house sessions once a month and are quite active down there. Most of the PHA lodges here are doing really good outreach work.

    I can ask the WM of the Canadian lodge. I'm pretty sure he has their contact info. The Canadian lodge is meeting this Monday 7pm at Echo's restaurant if you want to stop by.

    Alpha Military Lodge is difficult to miss on Bagram and they are active throughout theater. The only "mainstream" lodge I have found is a German lodge in KAF.

    I have been working on contracts in Afghanistan since 2004. Please see my blog http://www.cemab4y.blogspot.com The only working lodges in Afghanistan are Prince Hall and Canadian. I visited the Canadian lodge many times, when I was posted to Kandahar. I am very sad that no US Grand Lodge (other than PH) ever wanted to establish a lodge during the longest military conflict in US history.

    I am now at Camp Morehead, Afghanistan. This is a small camp, and there are only two(2) masons here, that I have found.

    I was at HKIA and OQAB for the first half of last year (2016). The only lodge there was a Prince Hall Lodge Chartered by the Oklahoma Prince Hall Grand Lodge.
