On the evening of May 6, members of Marion Lodge No. 562, Connellsville, were pleased to confer the three degrees in Freemasonry on LTC Kenneth E. King, Commander, 306th Military Police Battalion. A dispensation to confer the degrees on the same day was granted by R.W. Grand Master Stephen Gardner. Bro. King was home on a two-week leave from his duties at Camp Bucca, Iraq. Bro. Scott A. Felentzer, W.M., conferred the Entered Apprentice Mason degree and Bro. Michael C. Snyder, S.W., conferred the Fellow Craft and Master Mason degrees. Following the degrees, several presentations were made, including a U.S. Flag which had flown over Camp Bucca in Iraq. In addition, Bro. King was presented with a letter from R.W. Grand Master Gardner, recognizing his sacrifice and thanking him for his service to our country, along with a "Change for the Troops" calling card.
