ST. CLOUD - The St. Cloud Salvation Army has welcomed their new Majors.

Steven and Melody Koehler came to St. Cloud from the Salvation Army in St. Charles, Illinois. They began their appointment yesterday.

Steven Koehler says the Salvation Army appointed the couple to the St. Cloud post following the retirement of the Majors Manuel and JoAnne Madrid, and they are glad to be here.

The Koehlers just wrapped up 14 years of service in the Salvation Army in Illinois. They're currently going through orientation from the St. Cloud Salvation Army.

They have never lived in Minnesota before.
