    I am new to the forum. But I am hardly a new mason. I am a civilian Engineer, working in Iraq. I have been working in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2004.

    If you are interested in keeping up with the progress of Masonry in Iraq, see my blog:

    Charles Martin's Blog. Iraq, Afghanistan and Freemasonry

    My membership is with Bowling Green Lodge #73, grand Lodge of Kentucky F&AM. I also belong to Alexandria (VA) Scottish Rite bodies. I am demitted from the Shrine, but I will return to the Shrine, when I finish working here in the Hot Sands.

    There are many jobs in Iraq/Afghanistan, for all kinds of skills. I have worked in Iraq/Af. since Feb 2004. I have had four contracts in Af. and this is my third contract in Iraq. If you wish to work over here, where it is 140 degrees in the shade, and there is no shade, I will be more than glad to assist you.

    Send me an email at cemab4y@hotmail.com and I will give you a brotherly assist.

    Biggest need now is for telecommunications engineers. A Secret security clearance is required, but if a firm wants you, they will get it for you.

    Welders, drivers, supply specialists, etc. all are needed.

    Lol, you guys have fun with that. There will be no more trips over there for me.

    It is pretty good money if you can handle it, particularly on the civilian side.

    for a young man of 24, this sounds like the adventure of a lifetime. there's no way i could pass up an opportunity like that. if only i could get it.

    You are right and when I was in my early twenties I would have been saying EXACTLY what you are now ....so my friend I wish you all the luck in the world. I do have advice though. Whatever country you go to learn a few customs before you get there....
