The Arizona Military Degree Team was formed by several retired and prior military personnel who saw a need, and had a desire, to promote Freemasonry both within and without Arizona. Under the leadership of J. Wesley Stokes, PM, and with the approval of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Arizona, the team was formed in 1991.
The Team provides an outstanding presentation of the Arizona Masonic Fellowcraft Degree and the opportunity to share a Masonic experience, inculcate the Tenets, Principles and Lessons of Freemasonry; and establish a forum for fellowship and friendship.
It also affords the Arizona Masonic Brotherhood an opportunity to honor and remember our veterans from all theaters and eras of conflict.
We are Master Masons from all branches and services of the United States and foreign armed services. We confer the Arizona Fellowcraft Degree wearing the uniform of the member's service for the period during which they served. We strive for and usually attain military bearing, decorum and accurate ritual work.
