Subject: RE: BS: The Red Cross, WWII, and my in-laws
Yes. My dad served in Japan just after the Armistice, and also later,in the '50s, he was a civilian disaster rescue worker. Tornadoes, etc. He said he would give the ARC his blood, but nothing else--no money, no goods, etc. because they did sell the things that were donated. Don't know about the "girls" part, tho, and I don't know how true the selling sandwiches,etc. part is.
