Thank goodness

Salvation Army was there when and where they were really needed by the troops

From having chatted with Second World War veterans, I realized a common thread: “thank goodness for the Sally Ann.”

Whether it was northwest Europe, Italy or the Pacific, the Salvation Army was usually there to share a hot meal, a change of clothes and a kind word, not too far from the action.

And what the troops really remember is that they never asked for money.
