The Red Cross provides military personnel and their families with 24-hour communications assistance during emergencies, as well as with counseling and financial assistance for unexpected crises.

The organization sends messages to members of the United States Armed Forces at military bases worldwide from their families regarding births, the illness of immediate family members, and deaths. The information in a message helps the service member's commanding officer determine if emergency leave should be granted.

If you have other comments or questions about the American Red Cross and its programs and services, please email us at .

Opportunities to volunteer include helping with our military communications network.
