Theta Chi, with its more than 191,000 members, is one of the largest donors to the USO (United Service Organizations). This fraternity teaches the ideals that all people are due respect and dignity regardless of race, creed, color, sex, religion, handcap, sexual orientation, or gender. Founded by two military cadets, service to one’s country is considered extremely valuable. So much so that 90% of Theta Chi’s members during World War II answered the call to serve with two of them being recognized with the Medal of Honor.
