Thread Name: BS: The Red Cross, WWII, and my in-laws
Subject: RE: BS: The Red Cross, WWII, and my in-laws
I don't think they are all rumors. My stepfather who was in Burma during the war never had a good thing to say about the Red Cross. He said just about anything the soldiers got from them they had to pay for. Now the Salvation Army, on the other hand, he praised highly for their service to the troops.

That is not to say that the Red Cross has NEVER done good things ~~ I have first hand knowledge of their help during the Flood of 93, freely given and thankfully received.
