The American Red Cross motor corps was first organised by Florence Jaffray Harriman. The motor corps has about 45 members (Mostly made up of women of independent means). It was based at a garage at Sixteenth and M streets in Washington D.C.
The War and Navy department primarily used the service to transport war workers who had fallen sick, although in most cases it dealt with those suffering from the influenza pandemic of 1918.
