The Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) program dates back to the establishment of the American Red Cross by Clara Barton in May 1881. Not only did the "Angel of the Battlefield" risk her life tending to soldiers wounded in the Civil War, she bolstered their morale by writing letters for them to send to their families. Today’s American Red Cross workers proudly carry on this tradition through the SAF program, which serves as a critical line of communication between the U.S Armed Forces and their families.
Hero Care Network Casework volunteers work virtually to provide confidential emergency communications and assistance to veterans, military members, and their families. They help to ensure military families' needs are met when faced with an emergency.
