One of the most important things we do at the Red Cross is serve those who serve our nation. We support America’s military by helping members of the military, veterans and their families prepare for, cope with and respond to challenges. We do so in three main ways. First, we provide help and critical services on bases and in military hospitals. Second, we aid military families during deployments and emergencies. Third, we serve our veterans long after their service ends.
The Red Cross provides 24/7 support services around the world for our military every single day. So far this year, nationwide we have served 64,111 families. Just yesterday, we served 550 families. This includes emergency communications, financial assistance, deployment services (including coping assistance), information referrals to community resources and services for veterans (such as reconnection workshops and VA hospital programs). Our commitment never wavers.
