KA recognizes brothers that are currently serving, honorably discharged, or retired from the U.S. Armed Forces
Throughout the formation and history of Kappa Alpha Order, there have been numerous links between our Order and military service. Our founders, two of whom had completed service in the Civil War, looked to the Knights Templar for the Order’s values and guiding principles.

Since our founding, thousands of our brothers have served in the United States Armed Forces, many being highly decorated for their honor and service. This honor is available to brothers in good standing that are either currently serving, retired, or have been honorably discharged from the United States Armed Forces (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Navy). Brothers would be publicly recognized by receiving the Official Military Division of Kappa Alpha Order lapel pin and certificate.
