Memorial Day

Memorial Day remembers and recognizes our service members, its veterans, and their families for the endless sacrifices they have made to ensure the safety and security of nation. Everyday, the American Red Cross Southern Nevada honors our heroes through programs that provide care and support as a way to serve those who serve our nation.

 

 

The Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) program is executed all over the world as the Red Cross’ oldest, chartered mission. The beginning of SAF dates to over a century ago when Red Cross founder Clara Barton recruited nurses to provide critical services to soldiers, and humanitarian services to their families. Clara Barton’s legacy of selfless care to our service men and women continues on today, with SAF expanding their valuable services to three key areas: Emergency Services, Service to Military Families, and Service to Military and Veterans Hospitals.

Here in Las Vegas, the American Red Cross and MGM Resorts International have partnered up to create Boots to Business, an employment program that allows service members to take their experiences from the field, and translate them into skills that can be used in positions within MGM Resorts International. Boots to Business encompasses a number of aspects to prepare candidates and then empower them as they grow into MGM’s corporate culture. This program enables U.S. Veterans to use their leadership skills as new assistant managers and managers hired into MGM properties.
