It is difficult to convey the feelings we have to fully communicate our appreciation for the dedication, courage, and sacrifice, that our veterans have made for freedom. So, we will offer you this video presentation, and a few words more.

What cost, Freedom?
When you weigh the cost, and find the scales uneven.
Just, think of what life would be like, if there weren't those who would stand and pay the price.
For there is nothing so precious, as that, which is purchased with blood.
JB 2002


Here’s to the Heroes – A tribute by the Masons of Division 8, Free and Accepted Masons of California

 Each made a commitment to serve their country and Flag

Never to allow their Love of God to ever wane or sag

Through patriotism they put their families on hold 

To battle evil in all weather, even in the cold

It’s to their sacrifice that we honor them today

We owe each of them a debt that we shall never be able to repay

So proudly fly our Flag every chance you get 

In honor of those men and women whose memory we now protect
