About Army Red Cross

Red Cross provides access to financial assistance through the military aid societies, counseling, information and referral, and veteran’s assistance, The Red Cross messages when there is a family emergency.

Today’s American Red Cross service to the Armed Forces is keeping pace with the changing military through its network of 900 local chapters and 109 offices located on military installations worldwide. Both active duty and community-based military can count on the Red Cross to provide emergency communication services around-the-clock, 365 days a year, keeping the service member and his/her family in touch across the miles.

Although we are most familiar with the Red Cross messages when there is a family emergency, the Red Cross also provides access to financial assistance through the military aid societies, counseling, information and referral, and veteran’s assistance. While not a part of the Department of Defense, Red Cross staff members deploy along side the military to such areas as Afghanistan, Kosovo, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait working and living amongst the troops to ensure they receive vital Red Cross services.

The Red Cross often conducts blood drives and offers a full menu of disaster and health and safety training courses. These activities are available to service members and their families at Red Cross chapters and on military installations. For additional information on Red Cross programs and services, go to and click on AFES (Armed Forces Emergency Services) or call the toll free number 1-877-272-7337.
