    I would first like to thank the forum for all the great information and guidance that is readily available for men not yet Masons. This was one of the places I navigated for literally years before being initiated, passed ,and raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason on November 5th, 2016.

    I have always been intrigued with Freemasonry, every since seeing my grandfather wearing his ring and asking him what it meant, up to reading information for myself and deciding to take the steps. Becoming a Mason has been a very long time coming for me. Being in the military, I have tried to join lodges in Maryland, District of Columbia ( I know its the same thing, but the jurisdictions are separate lol) , and well as Florida. Anyone being in the military knows that PCS'ing and deployments interfere with just about everything. But, now I'm glad to say that since August 20th 2016 I have been a member of St. John Lodge #2 P.H.A. in Mobile, AL. I think this happened for a reason since I'm from Alabama originally. After all this time I think its about time I join the forum, instead of lurking!

    I'm really looking forward to seeing what else I can learn here.
