Veterans Affairs Services
The Salvation Army and Veterans Affairs
The ministry of The Salvation Army to veterans has grown from serving coffee and doughnuts in World War I to providing various programs of comfort and cheer. Services rendered to the veteran are as unique as the communities they live in. Salvation Army youth groups lend assistance such as helping with wheelchairs to get veterans outside for some fresh air. Some veterans experience a weekend at camp; some are provided phone cards and large print Bibles. From coast to coast, Salvation Army programs recognize the sacrifices our veterans have made for their country.
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
