Army Red Cross
The Mission of the American Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) is to provide humanitarian support to service members, veterans, and their families around the clock, around the globe, under a trusted symbol.
The American Red Cross serves and supports members of the military, veterans, and their families, providing needed comfort and care in military and veterans hospitals, support for military families with vital social services and by providing emergency communications to keep families connected when they need it most. The Red Cross assists in person where ever it is needed – alongside the troops throughout the world, on stateside military installations or in local communities far from a base. SAF at the Red Cross is a mixture of both tradition and innovation. We continually adapt our traditional services and create new programs to meet the needs to today’s military member, veterans and their families. Our work is important to the nation because it is important to our troops and their families.
