Today’s Famous Freemason Friday – and last look at Masons who served in WWI (commemorating the 100th anniversary) – is Bro. and Captain “Fast Eddie” Rickenbacker, Kilwinning Lodge No. 297, Detroit, Michigan. During World War I, Bro. Eddie served as the commanding officer for the 94th Aero Pursuit Squadron. He flew 300+ combat hours and received the Congressional Medal of Honor from President Herbert Hoover in 1931. On a special mission to Gen. Douglas MacArthur in World War II, Bro. Eddie’s plane went down, causing him and seven other men to be stranded in the Pacific Ocean on a raft for over 20 days. Although one man died, fortunately, the others – including Bro. Eddie – survived and made it safely home.
