MD Kappa Chi Brothers Serve Their Country 


By Alexander Haslacker

FROSTBURG, Maryland -- Military service is a proud tradition within the MD Kappa Chi Chapter at Frostburg University. Currently, we have one active Brother who is a veteran of the US Army and a combat veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and another active Brother who is a Navy Reservist based out of Annapolis, Maryland. It doesn’t end there. Our chapter roll of alumni who have served in uniform also includes: this year’s past Rex, a Marine Reservist out of Baltimore, a former Soldier based out of Fort Stewart, a former Marine Staff Sergeant, a Gulf War veteran, and many more. The MD Kappa Chi Chapter is proud to announce that that tradition is still going strong. We have three Brothers, two Alumni and one Active, who are or will be serving their country this year.

Major Ben Lindsey, Class of '95 is currently deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Brother Lindsey is a native of Fairfax, Virginia and graduated from Osbourn Park High School in 1987 and enlisted in the United States Army shortly after graduation. He was assigned to the 24th Infantry Division and is a veteran of Operation Desert Shield/Storm, 1990-1991. After his enlistment was finished he went onto attend Frostburg State University and became a chartering member of the MD Kappa Chi Chapter on April 23, 1993. He graduated from Frostburg State in 1995 with a BS in Geography, Urban Planning. He also graduated from the ROTC program and received a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Chemical Corps. Brother Lindsey is married to his wife, Misty; they have one son and live in El Paso, Texas.


Brother Chris Albright, Class of '08 is currently on his way to Basic Training at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Brother Chris is a native of Baltimore, Maryland and graduated from Parry Hall High School in 2002. He went onto attend Community College Baltimore City until the fall of 2004 when he transferred to Frostburg State University and joined the MD Kappa Chi Chapter that fall. He has served in many chairs and positions since he became a Brother, most notable of which was Pledge Marshal of the spring 2007 Pledge Class. He graduated from Frostburg in the spring of 2008 with a BS in Human Resources Management. He enlisted last fall and will be entering the US Army at a higher pay-grade (E-4 Specialist) due to his degree and will be attending 25U Signal Support Systems Specialist School at Fort Gordon, Georgia.


Brother Cade McCarty, Class of '12, is currently getting ready to deploy in support of Operation Enduring Freedom this August. Brother Cade is a native of Williamsport, Maryland and graduated from Williamsport High School in 2007 and went onto enlist in the Marine Corps Reserves as a 0352 Anti-Tank Marine and would attend Basic Training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina. He went onto the School-of-Infantry at Camp Lejuene, North Carolina and became a qualified Anti-Tank Marine. After his Marine Corps training he went onto attend Frostburg State University in the fall of 2008 and would join MD Kappa Chi that same semester. Cade is currently pursuing a BS in Law and Society, but will miss this academic year due to his unit's deployment.


The Active Brothers of the MD Kappa Chi Chapter wish a safe return of our Brothers in uniform and for the safe return of all of our men and women serving stateside or overseas. Not Four Years, But A Lifetime.
