John Hodson, California
Many years later and 3,000 miles away, I happened upon a small Salvation Army operation in Solano County, and asked, “Why aren’t I a member of your advisory board?” As it turned out, they didn’t have one. I had forgotten, but quickly re-learned, when you raise your hand around the Army, somebody is going to take you up on it.
We gathered up some community leaders, and started a new board. It limped along, then fizzled. Soon, however, the mission changed, and everything changed. The Suisun City Corps has now been designated the Western Territory’s 7th and final Kroc Center, with dynamic leadership, and a board of a dozen members is enthusiastic, engaged, and growing! I’m proud to be a part of it, and I hope my small service honors the many years of service rendered by my parents.
