Red Cross ready to help Iowa National Guard

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- With thousands of Iowa soldiers deploying to Afghanistan later this year, The American Red Cross says it is ready to serve as the emergency communication link between the soldiers and their immediate families.

If there is a death, serious illness, or birth in the family, the family contacts the Red Cross with the details on their service member and the message they wish to send.

The Red Cross can verify and quickly relay important and confidential information to military personnel.

The Red Cross performs this service to the armed forces at no cost to the family or service member. This is made possible by voluntary contributions from the American people.
