    Don't know but he is listed HERE

    Our Past Master served in Desert Storm and he commented one night, and got pretty choked up about it too, that the fact that General Schwarzkopf was a Mason influenced him greatly to become one himself.

    He was one of the last of a dying breed, and will be sorely missed. Truly a great man. If you have not read his book, I highly reccomend it. R.I.P. Brother.

    Hmmm, interesting.
    Would think that his home lodge and grand lodge would announce his passing. A distinguished leader by any standard and saw his name on the list that the link provided but have never heard him associated with a particular lodge. Any grand lodge would be proud of a member like that.

    He was my commanding General in Desert Storm. He was a great man and a soldiers General. God rest his soul.

    While eating Christmas dinner with my mother, I kept looking over at a picture of my grandfather shaking hands with the General. And to discover that he is a Brother? I was already proud to have served during his time.

    Fair winds and following seas, General.

    I have his memoir on my book shelf. Didn't know he is a Brother. Now I'm motivated to read it. May he rest in peace...

    I can not confirm that the General is or is not a Mason via my normal resources.

    I do agree with others that IF the General was indeed a Brother Mason, that the information would be more publicly available. Please keep in mind that a LOT of websites copy and paste a lot of miss-information relating to famous Masons.

    It was a sad day non-the-less.
