Cheers & Kudos

Thank you from The Salvation ArmyI would like to thank each one of our generous donors that made our ministry at the Vietnam War Memorial Wall possible. At the Battle Born Days, Vietnam War Memorial Wall Display and Nevada Day celebrations from Oct. 24-28, The Salvation Army was able to supply coffee, water, lemonade, doughnuts and spiritual support to both those involved as volunteers and to those who attended the events. We served more than a 1,000 individuals because of community organizations like Smith’s, Raley’s, Costco, Hostess Cake, doughnuts to Go, McDonald’s, Jack in the Box, Dominoes Pizza, Arby’s and Carl’s Jr. as well as a few individuals that donated money to our efforts.The Salvation Army had a coffee and donut booth and a chapel set up right across from the Vietnam War Memorial Wall. Many of the vets and family members saw our tables and chapel as a get-away from the emotional experience at the Wall. We had opportunities to talk with and pray for many of those who have served our country so faithfully. This kind of community service can only be done because of a giving community and The Salvation Army wants to thank each of these organizations for their generous support.Lt.
