MERITORIOUS SERVICE AWARD This is the distinctive red hat of the brother who has been awarded the MSA award for exemplary service to the Scottish Rite. Since 1937, Councils of Deliberation have been authorized by the Supreme Council, NMJ, to annually present this award to a limited number of members who have distinguished themselves by outstanding service, leadership, and dedication to the AASR. Together with the Jewel of the MSA, it is a decoration that can proudly be worn on any official occasion.  This is a lifetime achievement, and the holder of this award becomes a permanent member of the Council of Deliberation and is entitled to place "MSA" after his signature.
