Service to the Armed Forces: Supporting America's Military & Veteran families.
The Red Cross has been serving the military for more than 135 years and has deployed alongside military in every U.S. conflict since the Spanish-American War. Military members and their families are faced with considerable challenges related to frequent moves, training missions and deployments, long-term separation from spouses and kids, as well as financial and emotional strain. That’s why the Red Cross has built a long-standing program, their Service to the Armed Forces program, to help them cope with the challenges of service.
· Each year, the Red Cross provides nearly 471,000 services to service members, veterans and their families.
· Local Red Cross chapters brief more than 787,000 service members and their families each year through the “Get to Know Us Before You Need Us” program.
· Here in the Greater New York Region we work with more than 4,500 military members, families, and veterans each year.
