Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?


Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you walking daily by the Savior's side?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?


When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?


Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There's a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
O be washed in the blood of the Lamb!




These web pages about my Salvation Army experience are dedicated to those loyal Christian men and women who are within the Salvation Army, but who are also members of that "Glorious church, without spot or wrinkle, washed in the Blood of the Lamb."

 "For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood." Acts 20:27,28

You may be surrounded by the "savage wolves" Luke speaks of in the rest of this scripture, but take heart, trust God, He will take care of you.


 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Ephesians 5:27



Do you see them coming, brother,
Thronging up the steeps of light,
Clad in glorious shining garments,
Blood washed garments pure and white.

'Tis a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Do you hear the stirring anthems,
Filling all the earth and sky?
"Tis a grand, victorious army,
Lift its banner up on high.

'Tis a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Never fear the clouds of sorrow,
Never fear the storms of sin,
We shall triumph on the morrow,
Even now our joys begin.

'Tis a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

Wave the banner, shout His praises,
For our victory is nigh,
We shall join our conquering Saviour
We shall reign with Him on high!

'Tis a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.

'Tis a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle,
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.


My mother and we five children began attending The Salvation Army when I was seven years old. This is the story of my history with the Salvation Army. This may also explain certain weirdness in me. The most important occurrences in this subject were at The Seattle Temple Corps. You will read in detail about The Salvation Army Seattle Temple Corps in the last installment of this serialized history of my life in The Salvation Army.

 The Salvation Army History of Dan Ross is for my friends and acquaintances around the world. I have Salvatioist friends all over the United States and in the United Kingdom, France, Nigeria, Australia, Canada, Russia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, The Philipines, South America, Central America, Sweden and other countries. We have had a great time together for the most part and this is an opportunity to reminisce and reclaim friendships. I hope you enjoy your time on these webpages. Thanks for visiting

My first Salvation Army expereince was in Sheridan, Wyoming. Sheridan, Wyoming is within The Salvation Army Intermountain Division in the Western Territory of the United States..

My family moved to Seattle, Washington, when I was 12 years old. We attended the Ballard Ooutpost of the Seattle Citadel Corps. This Corps later changed its name to The Seattle Temple Corps. It is within the Salvation Army Northwest Division of the Western Territory of the United States.

When I was in my second year of college, I enlisted in the US Army. My Advanced Individual Training took place at the United States Army Intelligence School on the outskirts of Baltimore, Maryland, in Dundalk County at Fort Holabird, "The Bird." While stationed there, I attended The Salvation Army Hampden Corps in Baltimore. It was in The Salvation Army Maryland Division of the Southern Territory of the United States. The Division has since been changed to include what used to be The Salvation Army National Capital Division.

My next Salvati9on Army experience took place in Saigon, Vietnam, where I met up with the Salvation Army Medical and Soc9ial Services mission. I spent a lot of my spare time with them carrying boxes and driving a VW van for them and just kind of keeping them company. In Saigon, I attended our 525th Military Intelligence Group's chapel while on duty and when not on duty, I would go to the Christian Missionary Alliance Church in Saigon with the Salvationists there.

After Saigon, Vietnma, I was transf3erred to Ft Brtagg, North Carolina, where I was in the 18th Field Army )Airborne) in the Continental Intelligence Command. While at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, I attended The Salvation Army Fayetteville Corps.

I wrangled a transfer out of the Continental Intelligence Command to a high tech research outfit. I went to the 163rd Military Intelligence Command at West Fort Hood, Texas. While at Fort Hood, I attended The Salvation Army Waco Corps. I met my wife, Bonna, at the Waco Corps and was married shortly before I left the US Army.

After Waco, I returned to Seattle with my wife and majored in Physics at the University of Washington. While in undergrad school, we attended The Saovation Army Seattle Temple Corps where Bonna and I created the Seattle Temple Corps Young People's Band and Singing Company.

Upon graduation from the University of Washington with a Bachleor of Science Degree, we moved to Houston, Texas so I could attend grad school. My wife and I both taught school while I attended grad school at night. In Houston, we attended The Salvation Army Houston Temple Corps.

We returned to Seattle later and we once again attended The Salvation Army Seattle Temple Corps where we rejuvenated the Seattle Temple Corps Young People's Band which was very successful once again.

The Salvation Army English Speaking Corps, Hong Kong


William Booth, a former Methodist preacher, wanted a way to reach the poor and socially outcast of London. Gradually, his organization of Christian Missions grew into The Salvation Army, and by the late 1800s, had begun to spread the love of God and His word throughout the world. Because of the unconventional style in which The Salvation Army was organized, like an army with Booth himself as the general, the officers and followers were persecuted, and many were killed. But the organization sustained its growth.

In 1880, Commissioner George Scott Railton and seven women officers landed in New York and claimed the Americas for God. Salvation Army service in the United States grew and began to include services such as shelters, food depots, and hospitals.

During World War I, Salvation Army women officers wanted a way to help remind the soldiers of home, but they only had the materials on hand to make doughnuts. These "Doughnut Dollys" were so popular, the soldiers began to write home about Salvation Army service, and the Salvation Army's reputation as a worldwide service organization took off.

The Salvation Army continued to help with war services during World War II, cooperating with other organizations to form the USOs.

Today, The Salvation Army serves humankind in 106 countries around the world. Services include assistance with rent, food, utilities and prescriptions, transitional housing, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, Christian counseling, emergency men's, women's and children's shelters, youth services, services for the elderly, summer camping programs, and many more.
