Red Cross continues to support service members this holiday

December 6, 2012
The OBSERVER

The American Red Cross has helped to provide assistance to members of America's military and their families since the 1860s when Clara Barton was given the title of "Angel of the Battlefield" as she provided care to servicemen. Then, after the Civil War, Barton was authorized by President Lincoln to write letters to the family members to identify the fate of the missing soldiers to provide closure to the grieving parents, family and friends. Ever since then, the Red Cross has provided emergency services to the Armed Forces.
