    Been made a EAM. Was a wonderful experience and worth the wait. Can’t wait to learn.

    EAM being an "Entered Apprentice Freemason" - most will write EA, or sometimes EAF.. is "EAM" something used where you are ?

    And congratulations ! Keep asking questions.. from the above you can see over my 15 year journey - I still am :)

    I've never heard this either but figured it out due to previous post.

    I assumed it was Entered Apprentice Mason? Never saw that used either.

    Cali uses the expression “a lodge of Entered Apprentice Masons” but the individuals are still just EAs.

    Thank you all. I am a EA. I just put the M after it for Mason. Does anybody know if they’re lodges in Japan. I will be deploying there in the future and hopefully I’ll be raised a master mason at that time to visit more lodges there.

    Interesting that you ask about The Craft in Japan. At our Chapter meeting last week we had a great lecture on Freemasonry and Islam by Bro. / Companion Yasser AlKhatib. Part of the discussion was in regards to how Freemasonry crosses cultures and beliefs. One thing noted was that there are under 3,000 Freemasons in Japan. So, I would imagine Lodges are few and far between.

    To find out where the Lodges are located and to assure your Lodge / Grand Lodge is in Amity, check with your Lodge Secretary, he will be able to give you this information.
