Did you try your hand at yesterday's famous Mason trivia?

What famous Mason from New York founded The Boy Scouts of America? The correct answer its: Daniel Carter Beard.

Did you know Mr. Beard also authored 22 books on outdoor living and survival skills? Raised in 1917 at Mariner's Lodge No.67, here is another Mason who has left his mark on history!

75 years ago on June 6, 1944: D-Day. Brother Leonard G. "Bud" Lomell was a sergeant in the 2nd Ranger Battalion, who were tasked with destroying a battery of German 155mm guns mounted atop Pointe du Hoc in Normandy, France. Although he was shot through the side immediately upon landing, Lomell scaled the 100 foot high cliffs hand over hand on a rope while being fired upon from mortars on the beach. When he reached the top, he discovered that the guns had been moved inland by the Germans. After locating them, he used thermite grenades to disable all five guns. Historian Stephen Ambrose credited Bud Lomell as “the single individual – other than Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower – most responsible for the success of D-Day.”

Take a moment for honor in your heart your Brother, one of the greatest men of the greatest generation.

The portrait by Travis Simpkins was commissioned by the Grand Lodge of New Jersey. Bro. Lomell was a member of Durand Lodge No. 179 in Point Pleasant. He was our Scottish Rite Brother and recipient of one of our highest honors,
Daniel D. Tompkins Award For Distinguished Service.
