The Salvation Army’s Arkansas-Oklahoma Division is pleased to present The Salvation Army’s United States Southern Territorial Bank this coming January.  The USA Southern Territorial Band represents fifteen states that form the geographically expansive USA Southern Territory with members traveling hundreds of miles for just three rehearsals and performances each year. A high caliber of musicianship and a strong motivation for an effective music ministry are hallmarks of these men and women.
