    Understandable, but does that make it right/acceptable to make that jump after only a few months?

    Your case is definitely understandable, brother as to any person serving our country as their time is limited and they have to take the opportunity when it is presented.

    And THAT is why I said what I said. But, If they retain it and fully understand everything, then by all means go right ahead.

    It depends on whether you consider it a "jump". Folks in AASR-SJ don't.

    It's a matter of degrees (pun intended). Many jurisdictions required a 1 or 2 year waiting period up until a decade ago. Now a brother can receive a signed petition and invitation the night he's raised. That's how the rules work now.

    Right or wrong? Matter of opinion not of rules. Acceptable or not? Matter of opinion not rules.

    I would prefer a Brother wait that 1 or 2 years that was once required but I am well aware that's my own preference. I recommend the number of years it takes to go through the line because that's what I did and it worked well for me but I am very aware that was just my own experience.

    You're allowed. Masonry teaches following the rules and expressing our freedom within following the rules. I strongly value that freedom aspect. To me definitely acceptable for that reason no matter that it does not match my preferences.

    Great way to look at it. After all it is about having our passions subdued so I see exactly where you are coming from. Thanks for your input, brother.

    Kentucky has no mandatory waiting period but I do think that newly raised MMs should wait a few months before joining an concordant body to get a better understanding of the Blue Lodge first. Just my personal opinion.
