Major Tim Williford, former Saint Augustine Corps Officer, arrived at the Alexandria Corps last week.

Majors Richard and Virginia Watts, who recently served as interim Corps Officers, have re-entered retirement. Major Williford was born in Birmingham, Ala. to officer parents, and has been involved with The Salvation Army throughout his life. His very first appointment as an officer was right here in Alexandria. He has also served in Virginia, Illinois, Alabama, Michigan, and Florida. Major Williford has served in numerous Salvation Army disaster relief efforts, including Hurricanes Elena, Hugo, Erin, Charlie, and Dorian. He also served during The Salvation Army’s response to the Pentagon after the 9/11 attacks.
”Alexandria was my first appointment, so I have a history here. I’m looking forward to being here again and forging ahead into the future. With God’s help, nothing is impossible,” stated Major Williford. To support The Salvation Army of Alexandria, visit SalvationArmyALM.org/give.
