Since its inception the American Red Cross has played a critical role in supporting those serving in the armed forces and their families.
Both active duty and community-based military members can count on the Red Cross to provide emergency communications that link them with their families back home, access to financial assistance in partnership with the military aid societies, and information and referral and assistance to veterans. Red Cross personnel form a global network in 700 U.S. chapters, in military installations worldwide and in forward deployed locations in Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq.
In addition, hundreds of Red Cross chapters across the nation brief departing service members and their families regarding available support services and explain how the Red Cross may assist them during the deployment.
