Greetings from Fort Leavenworth, KS

You will see my home lodge as Manitou Lodge #68 in Colorado Springs. I am a PM there and the current Master of Hancock #311 at Fort Leavenworth, KS. Why am I here? To improve myself in Masonry by seeking knowledge. As you can see below Hancock Lodge is the only lodge on a US Military base authorized by an act of congress.
