Yes, I did know this.
During the mid-80's, ( Little Rock) I became very aquainted with the wife of one of their.......uhm, looking for the appropiate word, but " pastors"., they do implement military terms. We often traded off babysitting, and became somewhat close friends.
I did, attend several of their services, and while I do admire their generosity and community involvement, I was never able to "grasp" or "latch on" to their exact, theology.
For some unknown and unquestioned reason, when I move into a new area ( often), one of the first things I want to know, is where is the Salvation Army and how strong are they in the community? Since that time, I have not been to any of their services, still, I just want to know of their presence. Maybe, it is 'spiritual' insurance?
