A fraternity of  leadership.

Description: The Admiral James J.

“DeMolay, Jobs Daughter, and Rainbow [Girls] have the young men and women in their membership who possess all the right traits and strong character to become good and honorable and honest national leaders,” Adm. Carey said “That is why my foundation is offering this program to the sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters, and nieces and nephews of our fellow Masons.”
