U.S. #1267 was issued in celebration of 100 years of service by the Salvation Army, an organization that was founded to help alleviate social problems. 
 
The Salvation Army
Methodist minister William and his wife Catherine Booth first founded the East London Christian Mission in 1865 as a “volunteer army.” The name was changed to Salvation Army in 1878, two years before the organization reached America.
 
Early members of the Salvation Army, which was modeled after the military and had its own flag and music, wore Army uniforms. According to William, “The three ‘S’s’ best expressed the way in which the Army administered to the 'down and outs': first, soup; second, soap; and finally, salvation.”
 
The organization’s goals include “The advancement of the Christian religion as promulgated in the religious doctrines – which are professed, believed and taught by the Army and, pursuant there to, the advancement of education, the relief of poverty, and other charitable objects beneficial to society or the community of mankind as a whole.”
 
Today, the Salvation Army works in 121 different countries.
