World War I

Waco Lodge During World War I

Without a doubt, World War I was the busiest time in Waco Lodge’s history. Rich Field and Camp Macarthur were primarily responsible as we performed initiation ceremonies more than 1,000 times each year for the duration of the war. Below is a list of our members that we know served in WWI. This list continues to grow as we examine our archives.
