It's the Soldier, not the reporter
who has given us the freedom of the press.
It's the Soldier, not the poet,
who has given us the freedom of speech.
It's the Soldier, not the politicians
that ensures our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
It's the Soldier who salutes the flag,
who serves beneath the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag.

The George Washington Masonic National Memorial was constructed entirely with voluntary contributions from members of the Masonic Fraternity. The Memorial Association is the only unified effort of all of the Grand Lodges in the United States. The construction of this beautiful, awe-inspiring Memorial was the single most important 20th century successful endeavor by the entire Masonic fraternity. Each Grand Lodge is a sovereign body in its own territorial jurisdiction but the love and reverence for George Washington by the Masons in this country is amply demonstrated by the collective effort of all of the jurisdictions to keep this Memorial to Washington, the Mason, a living reality.

Knights Of Freemasonry Universal

"A Knight of Freemasonry Universal is a Mason who actively champions the causes represented by this sign. Like the knight in ancient orders of chivalry, a Knight of Freemasonry Universal is dedicated to a cause beyond self, and is willing to make great sacrifices in the fulfillment of a just cause. In addition to the obligations of a Master Mason, the Knight of Freemasonry Universal is bound to the ideals expressed in Anderson's Constitutions of 1723, making the hand of fraternity available to all who are good and true, honorable and honest, affirming that it is the internal and not the external qualities by which one becomes a Mason, and therefore practices equal regard for every race, creed or color. The soul of a Knight of Freemasonry Universal is resolved to labor for the complete establishment of Masonry as a center of union, and the means of conciliating true friendship among persons that may have remained at a perpetual distance."
