Service Men Helped by Red Cross Several thousand servicemen and their families benefited by the home service work of the Cerro Gordo county Red Cross chapter in 1343, according lo R u t h Giard, homo service secretary. These services ranged from investigating illness in the family at the reiincst of a serviceman to giving f i n a n c i a l assistance to servicemen's dependents. Miss Biard said. "When a man is away al camp or overseas, the Kcd C'ross home service is his direct link wilh home in lime of emergency."' the Incal Red Cross home service secretary slated. "Through the local home service a serviceman can quickly cut information rrfr.irrtinfr family health, welfare and living conditions. In lime of emergency he may apply for a loan or a grant to meet pressing family needs. Red Cross home service also supplies information requested by the military for use of commanding o f f i - cers in decisions regarding emergency furloughs. "Tiiis is one phase of t h e Red Cross program which is conducted by all of (he 3,756 chapters in the nation, and is a required activity. As a result, a soldier, sailor or marine overseas is never any farther from his family t h a n the nearest Red Cross worker." The 4 major functions of Red Cross home service arc: O) comm u n i c a t i o n and i n f o r m a t i o n .service men anil t h e i r families, (2) co-operating w i t h m i l i t a r y authorities by r e p o r t i n g on home condilions and social histories (3) assistance to servicemen, ex- service men and t h e i r dependent? in presenting claims for government benefits, and (4) f i n a n d a aid and g u i d a n c e for dependents of servicemen ami veterans. "Regardless of what the request, like all Red Cross services home service is absolutely free. Miss Giard said. "In lime of illness or emergency concerning a serviceman or his f a m i l y , "the local Red Cross chapter should be your f i r s t call for information and aid."
