Summary

"Blood, Sweat and Tears: An Oral History of the American Red Cross, is the story of the modern-day Red Cross told through the voices of twenty-nine current and former Red Cross paid and volunteer staff from all parts of the country. The stories range from that of a World War II veteran who credits the Red Cross packages with keeping him alive when he was a POW in Germany to Americans who became heroes simply because they signed up for a Red Cross course and were later able to save a life, to volunteers who spent an intense year in Vietnam cheering up soldiers. We hear from the staffer who pulled people from an automobile before the medics arrive; the mom who saved a neighbor's child when he was drowning; the nurse who took off from her job to go half-way around the world to distribute food and supplies to victims of the tsunami that struck the day after Christmas 2004."--BOOK JACKET.
