The Salvation Army provided military personnel with quiet surroundings
stocked with books, magazines, and writing paper. Also available
were game rooms where off-duty personnel could unwind. This allowed
the men and women who served Canada during wartime the opportunity,
if only for a brief period, to reconnect with the home life they had
left behind. Offering Canadians this 'touch of home' was the
lasting legacy of the Salvation Army's war services.
