Review for American National Red Cross, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

in 1987 my brother was killed in a ch53 helicopter crash in california. i was stationed in spokane washington in the usaf. i needed a plane ticket home. i was a poor airman. the red cross bought me the ticket with me paying it back with interest. while on that flight home, a young officer was sitting with me, he lost his brother also in that crash. he told me the red cross got him the flight.
when i got back after my brothers funeral i ran into that officer and asked him how he liked the pay deduction for those plane tickets. he told me the red cross told him not to worry about it, officers aren't charged for the tickets. here i am, an airman, paying 1200. for a 625.00 plane ticket. what justice is that, over the years i've learned more about the red cross' less than proper treatment of enlisted personnel. shame on you. i won't give them 5 cents.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

serving our country in the usaf

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be a bit more compassionate to the enlisted.

Role:  Client Served & i complained to the red cross, they shrugged their shoulders and said that was the way it was.
