Legion of Honor
The Legion of Honor is made up of Shriners who have served or are still serving in the armed forces. Our members are active duty, honorably discharged or retired; volunteers or draftees; officers or enlisted — we are proud to have served our country and protected the freedoms every citizen holds dear.
The objectives of the Legion of Honor are to perpetuate the memory of those who made the supreme sacrifice in the service of their country; to foster a spirit of patriotism and love of country and its flag; to support the Potentate in advancing the best interests of Kena; and to assist in upholding Shriners International.
In the Legion of Honor things like age, conflict and rank don’t matter — your service to your country does!
Membership is limited to Shriners currently serving, retired or honorably discharged from the armed forces.
We remind all nobles of the sacrifices our nation’s veterans made to protect our freedoms.
We commemorate the memory of Nobles who upheld the glory of the flag and who fought with valor for their country.
We recognize that each member has something unique to offer and encourage everyone to share their talents.
Most importantly — we like to have FUN.
Whether at our meetings, in parades, traveling to the Mid Atlantic Shrine Association, laying a wreath at Arlington Cemetery, or gathering at a unit or temple family function, we genuinely enjoy the camaraderie and company of each other.
