When we say 'wherever and whenever', we mean it! Pushing blood products and life saving techniques further to the point of injury. Work has shown that blood transfusion should be initiated within 30 minutes of injury to have the greatest impact on patient outcome. This means we need safe and efficacious products readily available to get to our forces as far forward on the battlefield as possible. The ‘beat’ goes on!

Traditionally as part of D-Day Commemorations, #Paratroopers would fall from the sky on drop zones near Normandy, France.

This year the All American Division donated their patches and took photos here on Ft. Bragg, sending them to be delivered to the children of Normandy.

We made a collage of the photos, check it out!

“And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the Soldier’s tomb, and beauty weeps the brave.”
- Joseph Rodman Drake, American poet

We take the time to honor and remember the legacies of the men and women who so bravely served our country. We honor their sacrifices that helped give us our freedoms.
The legacy of every service member lost in the line of duty lives in each and every one of us today.

As we remember those we’ve lost, may it encourage you to not only remember their legacies, but to carry them on in any way you can. Whether it is the duty of placing flowers on their grave, flying a flag at half-mast in your yard, bringing family together for a barbeque, or maybe donating blood at the next blood drive in your area, we encourage you to find the time to make their legacy live on through you.

No matter what you do, taking the time to remember this day’s purpose — honoring the sacrifices our military family have made — and then think of ways you can help shape the future. May their legacies always be honored and remembered.

Our Story

Since 1962, the Armed Services Blood Program has served as the sole provider of blood for the United States military. As a joint operation within the Defense Health Agency, the ASBP collects, processes, stores and distributes blood and blood products to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and their families worldwide. As one of four national blood collection organizations trusted to ensure the nation has a safe, potent blood supply, the ASBP works closely with our civilian counterparts by sharing donors on military installations where there are no military blood collection centers and by sharing blood products in times of need to maximize availability of this national treasure.

To find out more about the ASBP or to schedule an appointment to donate, please visit www.militaryblood.dod.mil.

DEAR FRIEND, FOR A LONG TIME I AD SENTA MESSAGE TO WHICH NEVER ARRIVED AN ANSWER. BUT TODAY I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I HAVE SENT A PACKAGE CONTAINING AN HONOR FROM THE ASSOCIATION OF ITALIAN BLOOD DONORS OF WHICH I AM VICE-PRESIDENT IN A SECTION. I HOPE IT WILL LIKE YOU AND I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A REFERENCE NOTE WHEN THE PACKAGE WILL HAPPEN YOU WITH FRATERNAL FRIENDSHIP, Cosimino Simeone [email protected]
How has COVID affected the ASBP collection posture and stockpile? AABB, America's Blood Centers, and the Red Cross have reported blood drives are down 100,000 (30% decline), and many are critically understocked with only a 1-2 days supply vs a normal week's supply.
Is there any chance that you can come to a base in NY or even West Point?

Opportunity for Veterans! New Musicals Inc (NMI) is adapting veteran's stories into ten-minute musicals to be filmed as part of a web-series to honor veterans. Veterans whose stories are selected for development will receive a $1000 honorarium and hold on to the rights of their stories. Don't let the "musical" aspect dissuade you. No musical talent needed to apply. NMI just needs a compelling story from your military background – just one story – not a compilation -- and they will bring a composer, lyricist, and professional actor together to turn it into song. They will also welcome you into the collaboration process if you want to be included on the creative side. See the link for info and a very short video that explains the project. Deadline is November 20. www.nmi.org/veterans

In response to your ads, articles and pleas everywhere for blood to alleviate the shortage, I signed up online to donate blood. I received a confirmed appointment online for 10 am this morning at RTC Great Lakes, IL and then drove 40 miles only to be turned away at the RTC gate. I was then sent to the other side of the base to the visitor center to get an RTC pass, and they refused to issue one even though I showed them my retiree ID card and the printout of my confirmed appointment. I was then sent packing, all the way back home. If you’re going to hold the blood drive at the RTC (the most restricted area on the base) I’d like to suggest that registered blood donors names be automatically placed on a special access list at the gate, or, move it to an easy access area with easy and open parking like maybe Lovell or the NEX lot. Submitted for consideration. Tim Aines CDR, USCG (ret.)
I sent a message to which I have not yet received a reply. please read it.
