For Our Veterans, and those still serving:
This page is for the families of Our Military, as well as those on Active Duty. I ask ALL members and readers of SalvationFirst to consider touching the heart of our fine men and women serving us, and protecting our rights to pray and worship, as a freedom of choice.
First please allow me to post a letter I received from Ron Leonard:
Dear Friends In Christ:
Hi there and greetings in the mighty name of Jesus! Marilyn and I want to wish you a blessed Christmas as you gather with family and friends to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus! This time of year has always been very special to me. But as I know you are well aware over 100,000 military men and women are serving our great nation far away from home and families! Just this week 6 soldiers from FT. Campbell (Home of the 101st Airborne) lost their lives in the Afghan war zone. So continue to pray for Marilyn and I as we minister to these precious men and women, and share the only message that matters, and that is Jesus Christ!
Yours Because Jesus Loves Our Military,
US Army Retired
Having Served In All Iraq and Afghan Conflicts

Below are two links that will help you get the help you may need. SalvationFirst is proud of you guys and gals, and we are glad to be able to help you in both the Spiritual, mental, and the physical aspects of your life.
For both our Vets, and those still serving, The Veterans Adminastration cares about your Mental Health. The Adversary attacks us through depression... As a way to try to stop us from attaing the happiness Our Father intends for all His Children to share. I have included this information for those that need help in this area.
