Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D.,
had a childhood dream of becoming a physician. Growing up in a single parent home, it was his mother who challenged her son to strive for excellence.  Young Ben persevered, and today is a full professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery and pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. 

Carson received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2008. Among his career highlights include the first and only successful separation of craniopagus (Siamese) twins joined at the back of the head in 1987.

Since its founding nearly 150 years ago, The Salvation Army has lived out its mission: To meet human needs in His name, without discrimination. People who come to the Army for assistance will be served according to their need and our capacity to help - regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation.

Some Internet postings originate in remarks made in a radio interview by Australian Major Andrew Craibe reported by the Truth Wins Out organization. It is emphatically noted that Major Craibe's comments do not reflect the views, policies, beliefs, or teachings of The Salvation Army anywhere in the world at any time in history.

We acknowledge that because of our size and scope, occasionally one of our millions of employees and volunteers might say or do something that does not reflect our values. We address these incidents as soon as they arise. 

The Salvation Army believes that all people are equal, regardless of sexual orientation or any other factor, including race, gender and ethnicity.
