Red Cross seeking WWII volunteers to build exhibit

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Red Cross chapter is looking for its World War II volunteers to build an exhibit.

"We're looking for American Red Cross volunteers who served overseas or here at home during World War II or family members of World War II Red Cross veterans who can share with us," said Mississippi Coast Red Cross chapter executive Oscar Barnes.

"We'd like to build a World War II exhibit here at the local chapter, sharing experiences and memorabilia."

The Red Cross Visitor's Center in Washington is home to a virtual museum that profiles Red Cross staff and volunteers who helped during the war.

To share your World War II Red Cross experiences, call Oscar Barnes at 228-896-4511.
