Your Soldier, Your Army: A Parents' Guide by Vicki Cody
So you have a Soldier in your family . . . how exciting! Let me just say right now what a great honor it is to have a Soldier in your family. You should feel so proud. Regardless of where you come from, your race, religion or political views, you need to realize how important your Soldier is to our Army and to our country. You may have mixed feelings and emotions about all of this, but above all you should be bursting with pride.

American Red Cross: Active Duty Military Personnel
Members of the U. S. Armed Forces don't have to be actively deployed to benefit from American Red Cross support. The Red Cross provides services to 1.4 million active duty military members and their families. Our services are available to all branches of the military. The American Red Cross wants members of the military to get to know us before you need us. All too often, service members don't know about available Red Cross services until they are mobilized. Knowing in advance that communication links, access to financial assistance and counseling will be available in an emergency brings peace of mind to the military members and to the families from whom they are separated. Similarly, knowing that Red Cross services are available to service members and their families provides a safety net in times of need.
