The Phi Kappa Psi Military Shield of Honor is now available for any Brother who has entered into military service. This medal is made to recognize our Brothers' willingness to sacrifice and serve our country.
Phi Kappa Psi was founded on the "Great Joy of Serving Others." In the course of her history, many Brothers have taken that oath a step further and chose to enter the armed services.
Like the Order of the S.C., these Brothers are a revered group of men in Phi Kappa Psi. While they did not choose to serve for medals, these Brothers have gone years without a symbol recognizing the respect our Fraternity has for them.
The design committee, chaired by veteran and Brother Brenton Monteleone (Texas '84), chose a design similar to those awarded by the United States Military. The solid medal, which contains an eagle with wings spread, also features two stars to serve as symbols for the United States of America and the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. The red, green, red ribbon reflects the flag of Phi Kappa Psi.
This is a medal we encourage our service members to wear on the front of their jacket anytime they are joined in the bond of Fraternity. Although it can be worn outside of the jacket when not at a Phi Kappa Psi function, the symbols and what they best represent are intended for an audience among Brothers.
If you are hosting an event to honor Brothers who have served please fill out this order form and email it, along with a description of your event to Timothy Tangen at email@example.com. The Medals are $30 each.
