As we all know, the Service to the Armed Forces emergency communications program provides a valuable link between our solders and their families back home. With the increasing number of service members deployed overseas it is more important than ever to highlight the selfless work that Red Crossers worldwide do to support or troops.
Congressman Michael Burgess (R-TX) recently introduced a resolution (H.Res. 937) that recognizes the emergency communications program as a vital resource for military members and their families. In fact, he personally depended on this service to get word to his son that his grandfather passed away.
Contact your Representative today and encourage them to cosponsor this resolution. Their support will help us continue raising awareness of this important service to our military.
