F.M.O.K.T- Friends and Members of The Order of The Knight TemplarÂ´s
The Friends and members of the Knight Templars is a chivalric association of like-minded individuals who demonstrate seven core principles: Chivalry, honour, integrity, humility, courtesy, wisdom & charity. We sopports The Knight TemplarÂ´s in a Moore visible way ! Actually, the templar's still exist but have become more modern. It really isn't about Crusades and shiny armor anymore. They still respect their heritage. But it is more about spirituality and religon now.
As an addendum to the above answer-
I hate to quibble with you, but the evidence of Templars coming to America is bordering on mythos and "what-if". It's true that a rune stone with references to Temple Knights was found in Minnesota, but the experts remain fairly divided.
The "Templars" of today that are found in the Free and Accepted Masons are only found in the York Rite of the Order. If a man wishes to advance to this degree, he must be a Christian (Freemasons in general are only required to believe in a Supreme Being) and he shall have been passed through the Royal Arch degrees. Most lodges in the US are Scottish Rite, but a number of York Rite lodges exist. My suggestion to you would be to find a Mason that you know and that knows you and ask.
It is believed by some that they still exist, and are still fully operational.
As an addendum to the addendum:
The faith has never been lost and many are still around who believe in the old ways. Please do not attempt to push all of the Orders Descendants into one small box. It is tiresome to say the least. I suppose conservitively one only needs to follow the laws and ways to be considered a laymember, but to earn your spurs as it were you must adhere to the Knights Code as well as the laws and ways. Purity or the lack thereof is not a requirement even the wicked may swear the oaths, but repentance is a must for only the Lord is pure. Dozens of Orders still stand for the Oaths globally. aswell there are many "loners" amongst us. The Pope long ago apoligized for this sin of his against us. We still stand. God does not abandon. You are welcome.

The Knights Templar had squires to serve them. Their squires differed from those of other knights, because they were not in an apprenticeship and did not normally become knights, but were just servants. Also associated with the Knights Templar were sergeants, who were members of lower social classes who served as light cavalry. They rendered military service. The Knights Templar had their own clergy as well.
