AUSTIN (KXAN) — The American Red Cross has launched a new app to help connect people serving in the military with their loved ones around the world.
The Hero Care App allows families in the middle of an emergency to reach out to their military loved ones to initiate the effort to bring them home if necessary. The app allows members to securely store and easily access their military member’s personal information.
Bristel Minsker joined KXAN News Today to explain why the app is needed and who should use it.
The Hero Care App is available to download for free in app stores, by texting ‘GETHEROCARE’ to 90999 or by clicking on the following link from a mobile device http://3cu.be/sharehc.
