Throughout the formation and history of Kappa Alpha Order, there have been numerous links between our Order and military service, and 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.
At the 73rd Convention in 2009 in Washington D.C., Knight Commander J. Michael Duncan announced the formation of the Military Division of Kappa Alpha Order, and the first group of brothers was recognized.
Recognition Pin: The Military Division of Kappa Alpha Order lapel pin features the Maltese Cross, utilizing KA’s colors crimson and old gold, has 8 points in the cross, which symbolize the chivalric virtues of loyalty, piety, frankness, bravery, glory, and honor, contempt of death, helpfulness towards the poor and sick, and respect for the church.
