Military Greek Letter Organizations

Is anyone here aware of MilGLOs? If you are, what is your opinion of them?

Here is a listing of the black military Greek letter organizations that I am aware of and list on my site, BlackOrgs.net:

2000: Sigma Phi Psi Military Sorority
2011: Kappa Epsilon Psi Military Sorority
2013: Kappa Lambda Chi Military Fraternity
2014: Alpha Gamma Xi Military Sorority
2015: Sigma Alpha Gamma Military Fraternity
2016: Delta Omicron Alpha Military Sorority
2016: Rho Upsilon Tau Military Sorority
2016: Theta Nu Psi Military Fraternity
2017: Mu Beta Phi Military Fraternity
2017: Psi Delta Tau Military Fraternity
2017: Mu Phi Psi Military Fraternity and Sorority
2017: Lambda Beta Alpha Military Sorority
2017: Iota Gamma Psi Military Sorority
2018: Omega Xi Omega Military Fraternity
2020: Pi Delta Phi Veterans Fraternity

GC hasn't had many members of these organizations participate on the site, as most were founded after the site's heyday.

I don't make it a point to have opinions of organizations that have not harmed me. Live and let live.

There was an Alpha Xi Delta alum who used to post that was also a member of Kappa Epsilon Psi. I think it was in her signature line.

Most of my "interaction" with them has been with the large number that have attempted to either create Wikipedia pages or be added to the list in the "Military, government, and foreign service" section of the wikipedia page about Professional Fraternities.

Three of them belong to the Professional Fraternity Association (although these groups don't appear to be primarily collegiate in concept): Kappa Epsilon Psi, Kappa Lambda Chi, and Mu Beta Phi.

The others currently listed on the Professional Fraternity page are Alpha Gamma Xi , Lambda Beta Alpha, Psi Rho Phi, and Zeta Sigma Psi.

I also wonder whether, as indicated from the inclusion of all of the groups currently on Wikipedia listed on Blackorgs.net whether all of the 21st century MilGLOs are primarily African American in tradition and Membership.

I do separate them in tradition from the much older primarily collegiate groups: Scabbard and Blade, Pershing Rifles and Pershing Angels whose members, I believe, were primarily formed from those in collegiate ROTC.

I don't think the intention was for them to be predominantly black, they just have poor recruiting skills. I used to be a part of MilGLO
