With Veterans’ Day this Friday, we would like to remind our community about some of the services the American Red Cross offers to the U.S. Armed Forces.
A great part of the American Red Cross is to provide emergency-related services to our military, veterans and their families. One of the services we offer is emergency communications service. This allows our deployed men and women to have a way of communicating with their families and loved ones at any time. This can be extremely valuable especially if someone in the family is ill or expecting a baby. The service is reliable and all information is kept confidential and verified. The information provided also helps military authorities process emergency leaves or extensions.
Financial Aid/General Service members and their families can experience unique financial problems. These may include a delayed pay allotment, financial neglect of family members or emergency travel expenses. The American Red Cross can help to resolve these problems through referrals to other appropriate resources and coordinating loans from military aid societies.
To request help, you can call (512) 928-4271 and request to speak with our SAF Caseworker.
Please be prepared to provide the service member’s:
- Full Name
- Social Security Number
- Branch of Service
- Military Unit
