Buzz Aldrin

Ever wondered where involvement in freemasonry might take you? Maybe to the moon? That what happened to Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, who is famous as being the second man on the moon, after Neil Armstrong. A devoted mason, Aldrin took a masonic flag with him on the Apollo 11 craft and also special permission from the masons to claim “Masonic Territorial Jurisdiction for The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Texas, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, on The Moon”. He was also a devout Presbyterian, so had a home communion kit with him as well. He may not have been the first man on the moon, but he was certainly the first man to take communion on the moon!
