MM Degree Aboard USS Lexington 9/10
On Saturday, September 10th, Oso Naval Lodge No. 1282 in Corpus Christi, Texas will confer the Master Mason degree aboard the U.S.S. Lexington CV-16. Masonic degrees have previously been performed on board the aircraft carrier since she was permanently docked in 1992. The event is in conjunction with the Grand Lodge's Officers Leadership Training Program.
The degree will be presented in the onboard three-story tall Mega-theater, built in the original forward aircraft elevator, which has seating for 193.
Lodge will open onboard at 8:00PM, and the degree will begin at 8:15PM.
Tell the admissions office that you are with the Masons, and you will be required to present a current dues card. Aprons will be provided, but please bring your own in case the supply runs low.
The Lexington was commissioned February 17, 1943, serving the United States longer and setting more records than any other aircraft carrier in the history of naval aviation. The Japanese erroneously reported Lexington sunk on four different occasions during WWII, leading Tokyo Rose to nickname her "The Blue Ghost." Lexington was the oldest working carrier in the U.S. Navy when decommissioned in 1991.
