    The American Red Cross Armed Forces Emergency Service (AFES) communication program keeps military personnel in touch with their families following the death or serious illness of a family member or other important family event such as the birth of a child.

    The Red Cross sends messages quickly anywhere around the world, including ships at sea, embassies and to isolated military units. The information or verification in a message assists the service member's commanding officer in making a decision regarding emergency leave.

    Service member's full name
    Branch of service
    Social security number
    Military address
