Celebrating Love in the Midst of a Disaster

Salvation Army DFW's very own Frank and Bera Calvert celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary on June 30th while heading to South Texas to help with Hurricane Alex. The Calverts are disaster relief specialists and were part of the team that was  recently deployed from Fort Worth.

Instead of celebrating in the traditional way. The Calverts prefer putting their compassion into action to help others.

This is the second time they have worked a disaster with The Salvation Army on their anniversary. The first time, they didn't tell The Salvation Army officer it was their anniversary because they were concerned he would not let them go, and would insist that they stay in town to celebrate their special day.

Read their full story in the Fort Worth Star Telegram!

Congratulations Frank and Bera on 48 years of marriage! We are thankful for your compassionate heart and are honored by your commitment to The Salvation Army in helping those in need.

Frank and Bera Calvert were recognized by the Task Force Incident Commander Victor Taylor of the Department of Public Safety, for 48 years of marriage!
