The American Red Cross

The American Red Cross played an important role during World War II, both at home and on the front lines of battle. At home, the Red Cross provided family support and encouraged Americans to grow Victory Gardens and promote war bond drives. Of course, the Red Cross also coordinated blood drives at home. Overseas, Red Cross workers provided nursing and transportation. There were many jobs for Red Cross workers, and just as many uniforms to fit them.
