This is the first annual ride to benefit the Armed Forces. The American Red Cross’ support of military members and their families enhances morale and contributes to increased operational capability. The American Red Cross provides critical services with a caring touch to men and women in all branches of the United States military, active duty personnel, reservists and members of the National Guard, and their families. Through their “Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) program, service men and women are eligible for three types of assistance beginning on the first day of enlistment: Emergency Services, Service to Military Families, and Service to Military and Veterans Hospitals (see http://www.redcross.org/what-we-do/support-military-families). There are three military bases within an hour of Santa Barbara. Pt. Mugu Naval Base, Port Hueneme Naval Base, and Vandenberg Air Force Base. The military definitely has a presence in our community and any contribution on their behalf is greatly appreciated.
