The Red Cross provides these services through employees and volunteers that are stationed worldwide alongside the military, on military installations nationwide, in areas of conflict, and through a network of more than 650 Red Cross Chapters that have offices on domestic installations as well as supporting service members, veterans, and their families who are not located near a military installation.

Other services include travel assistance, Red Cross assistance sites based in Afghanistan and Kuwait, personal items, support to families of combat casualties, and deployment support training.

In determining whether the activities of this organization appropriately "shall serve the national interest" per §8077 of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (Public Law 113-6), the following criteria, with justification, are submitted:
• Management or Institutional Value:

In 2012 the Red Cross received three stars (of four) from Charity Navigator.
