Mission of the El Katif Legion Of Honor

The "Legion" is made up of Military Veterans, Retirees and Active Duty Personnel, who want to perpetuate the memory of those who died in the Service of their Country. To serve and support our Potentate and act as a Service Unit to the Shrine and Shriners Hospitals, and cultivate a spirit of comradeship among members, not only as Noble Brothers, but as Comrades-In-Arms, who have served our God and Country on the Land, on the Sea, and in the Air. And to provide sociability, entertainment and ceremonial activities with a military atmosphere that will promote the interests of El Katif Shrine and Shrinedom in general.

We of the El Katif Shrine Legion Of Honor consider ourselves to be "Servicemen In Service to the Shrine", and our Motto is "It's an Honor to belong to the Legion Of Honor"!

Membership Requirements

Membership in the Legion Of Honor is limited to Nobles of the Mystic Shrine who are serving in, or have been honorably discharged from, the Armed Forces of their country. This includes service in the Guard, Reserves, Merchant Marines, and Coast Guard.

Honors we've recieved:

The El Katif Legion Of Honor was credited with sponsoring two brand new Legion Of Honor Units in Calam Shrine, Idaho, and Al Aska Shrine, Alaska, which earned the new Units I.A.L.O.H. Charter Approval in 2001.

History was made when the El Katif Legion Of Honor sponsored the very first Shrine Hospital Screening Clinic, at the Base Hospital of Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, for Military Dependent Children, in 2000.
