Eligibility to receive this honor from the Grand Master of the Grand Encampment of Knights Templar
of the United States of America is awarded to Sir Knights for exceptional and meritorious service
rendered to the Order. Far beyond the call of duty, and beyond the service usually expected of an
officer or member. One nomination may be made for Grand Commandery whose membership is 10,000 or less.
Constituent Commanderies, upon selecting their nominee, forward the name of it to the Grand Commander who,
in turn, makes a selection from a continuous file of all nominees
