Red Cross Workers of World War II

The Red Cross served a vital role during World War II, both at home and abroad. They provided comfort and aid to members of the armed forces and their families, served in hospitals suffering from severe shortages of medical staff, and produced emergency supplies for war victims. They also shipped over 300,000 tons of supplies overseas, prepared 27 million packages for American and Allied POW’s, provided refreshments to the troops, and collected 13.3 million pints of blood for use by the armed forces.
