    My name is Brent Heilman. I live in Duncan, OK and became an EA last Thursday March 10. I am a RADAR Instructor at Ft. Sill. I am a veteran of the Navy and until I started on this new journey in my life I have never met so fine a group of people. I look forward to learning not only more about the Craft but about myself also. Hopefully once I am raised to Master Mason I can start travelling and visiting Lodges throughout Texas and Oklahoma. Most of my family live in Texas so I am always travelling in the state.

    Thank you Bro. Bowden for the warm welcome. I also want to say thanks for this forum. I happened upon it a couple of days ago and it is a great place with a wealth of knowledge. I am also thankful that I don't have to be a Texan to be a part of it since I can't find anything of this caliber in Oklahoma. Again thank you for the welcome and the forum and I am looking forward to many days sharing in the knowledge with my new Brethren.

    Hey Brent! I grew up in Lawton. I'm glad to hear Duncan's lodge is alive and well. I have been in Texas for the last 20 yrs. Was just raised in December in New Braunfels AF&AM 1109. Planning to visit some lodges in OK later this year. Got some family there in Duncan. Cheers.

    Yes it is doing well. I was initiated there on the 10th with one other person. We have 2 more in the next couple of weeks. I saw where you are in New Braunfels. Love that area. My dad lives in San Antonio so I am down there a few times each year. So you have family here? I saw your last name was Simpson, just curious who they may be and if I know them. I grew up in Duncan and stayed here until I joined the Navy and when I got out I wound up moving back here.
