Why do Salvation Army officers and people who are followers of The Salvation Army church program wear uniforms?

In 1878 William Booth’s Christian Mission was renamed The Salvation Army to depict the dedication of Booth and his followers in their war against hunger and poverty. As a metaphor to the movement, the organization remains today in management style within a quasi-military form of leadership. Because followers of the Army come from varied backgrounds, the wearing of a uniform is symbolic that each individual is a dedicated disciple in the fight to eradicate poverty and help restore personal self respect for the less fortunate.
