Evangeline Booth was the first female general of The Salvation Army. Among her previous appointments was National Commander of The Savlation Army in the United States.  After World War I, she was honored with the U.S. Army's Distintuished Service Medal, one of a small number of civilians to recieve it.  

The medal had to do with her organization of canteens, hostels, and resto rooms during the war and afterwards for returning U.S. Expeditionary Force soldiers and sailors.  In addition, the first of 250 Salvationists went to the front lines along with U.S. soldiers, to provide some relief to the troops there. It was this work that endeared The Salvation Army to numerous military veterans, and greatly improved the view of The Salvation Army in the eyes of U.S. citizens.
