Knights Templar Honor Guard
Temple Commandery #4 in Des Moines, initiated this practice of performing an honor guard at the officer installation ceremonies in the Des Moines area. The Sir Knights march into the Lodge room, present swords, and form an arch of steel in honor of the new Worshipful Master and other officers of the Masonic Lodge. The honor guard performed by the Knights Templar is a way to show respect and add to the dignity of the officer installation ceremony. Other Sir Knights participating in these honor guards at local Lodges include Dan Hobson, Ken Brickman, and Charlie Smithson.
