The Red Cross has always been there for us, said Mr. Robert L. Gordon III,
deputy assistant secretary of defense for military community and family
policy. It's critically important to our men and women serving away from
home that their families know whom to call in the event of an emergency. The
Red Cross is now making it even easier to make that call.

provides assistance to more than 2 million service members and many of the
nation's 24 million veterans. The Red Cross provides emergency
communications linking service members with their families during time of
crisis; comfort and care in military and veterans medical facilities; access
to financial assistance in partnership with the military aid societies;
information and referral and assistance to veterans.
