Our International Tracing Services can help families who are separated by armed conflict or disaster a way to restore contact. These services include locating missing loved ones, exchanging family messages and securing travel documents from the International Committee of the Red Cross to reunite separated family members.
The Service to the Armed Forces program dates back to the establishment of the American Red Cross by Clara Barton in May 1881. Not only did the “Angel of the Battlefield” risk her life tending to soldiers wounded in the Civil War, she bolstered their morale by writing letters for them to send to their families. Today’s American Red Cross workers proudly carry on this tradition through our military support programs.
