I can’t thank you enough

When my mother passed away suddenly this weekend the Red Cross was able to get a message to my son in the Navy. He was able to call me later that day and I can never express how much gratitude I have for this. Thank you!

Comfort zone

My son recently graduated from BMT and it's a good feeling knowing Red Cross is here when we need it. I received the email the day after we came home from Lackland AFB. It all worked out so perfectly. Thank you to all service members, past, present, and future.
