The Red Cross send emergency communications on behalf of family members who are facing emergencies or other important events to members of the U.S. Armed Forces serving all over the world.

Red Cross workers in hundreds of chapters and on military installations brief departing service members and their families regarding available support services and explain how the Red Cross may assist them during the deployment. Support services include emergency financial assistance, counseling, and other assistance.
