God bless you Brother Derick. As i was reading a little about your book. The holy led me to reveal something to you. You mention Pastor Gary C. Patterson, former Army Chaplin. Drill Sargeant Wallace Bennett Jr, is the founder of the Gospel Service. He started a choir that was know as the VOICES OF THEBRIGADE, that became very well know and popular that birth out the Gospel services on Ft. Sam San Antonio, Texas. From 1988-1993 the VOB was voted for 5 years the community choir of the year and won many other awards. This was the actual birth of the Gospel Service by Drill Sargeant Wallace Bennett and Janice Bennett (overseer). Drill Sargeant Bennett was given orders by Major Gibilisco to surrender the organization that he founded over to chaplin Gary Patterson. They laid hands on him and than gave him orders to release himself from the choir and church he started. There's alot people dont know what happened behind the sene at ft. sam. Google Drill Sargeant Wallace Bennett jr and you will see in the left bottom corner of the news paper Drill Sargeant Wallace Bennett Jr Master of ceremony for the Voices Of Antioch choir 10th Anniversary. So anything from 1988-until now is a seed that was sown than. So want to recognize the true birthing parents of the Gospel service
