    Brethren,
    I am Bro. Colby Karaim, a resently raised MM serving in the Navy in Italy. I do plan on moving to the Austin area in 2014. My journey so far has been life changing and I can't wait to continue.

    Greetings. Based on your post I learned we had American Lodges overseas, or predominately military lodges. I was under the impression military lodges were only chartered by PHA grand lodges. Interesting to see you fall under the Grand Orient of Italy. Hopefully I'll be heading to Aviano in the future. I spent 5 years in Germany before I PCS'd back to the states, and I miss Europe a lot. Good luck and stay safe.

    I am near Catania (Sicily). It is great here but I'm excited to get back to the states. There are lodges all over Italy for military. This surprised me too but I like it. I'm glad I had the opportunity to start my travels here. Thank you brethren for your warm welcome.

    I did two years in Geata, Italy on USS Belknap. Great time in my life! Enjoy it!

    Greetings and welcome. I traveled to Italy in 2011 for my 2-week mid-tour leave. I had an amazing time and I plan on going back as soon as I can afford it.

    I was just reading through old post. Funny how things change. No longer going to Austin. Decided to stay Navy. Virginia is next now.
