January is National Blood Donor month, and the Armed Services Blood Bank Center-Pacific Northwest normally conducts it's annual donor appreciation ceremony for the previous year. We recognize our donors that met milestones in donations. As we all know this year has been different. The ASBBC-PNW was able to conduct the ceremony, but a couple of our platelet donors were not able to make it because they had an overseas trip planned.

Ruth Stevick and her husband, Lynn, were that couple. Ruth was going to be recognized for reaching 400 platelet donations. Their trip was cancelled because of COVID-19, then in March all things shut-down because of the pandemic. We could not wait any longer, it has almost been a year since that 400th donation. Being able to have a small ceremony to recognize Ruth at the center was not possible. Today while Ruth was donating platelets, her 417th donation, Major Juan Guzman, director of the ASBBC-PNW presented Ruth with a small token of appreciation for reaching 400 donations.

Ruth as been donating longer than any military and civilian employee currently at the ASBBC-PNW. Her dedication has prompted others to take on the challenge.

Thank you Ruth, we look forward to you reaching your 500th donation.

It was just a normal sunny spring day on the Eglin range. That is until blood fell from the sky.
The blood, packaged in a cooler and attached to a parachute, was pushed out of a C-145A for a test study called Operation Blood Rain.
The goal of the study was to determine if fresh blood could withstand an airdrop to combat medics in austere environments.

2020 ASBP Lifetime Achievement Award: Retired Army Col. Glen Michael Fitzpatrick, Ph.D.

It is with great pleasure and honor to announce the recipient of the 2020 Armed Services Blood Program Lifetime Achievement Award:
Retired Army Colonel Glen Michael 'Mike' Fitzpatrick.

During a 40-plus-year career in blood banking, Fitzpatrick has made significant contributions to the warfighter as well as served in key capacities during three major events in recent U.S. history: Operations Desert Shield and Storm, the immediate blood response to the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, and the initial blood planning support for the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

Above all, he has been a staunch supporter of the ASBP and has garnered the admiration and high esteem of those he has worked with, whether they be military, civilian or international colleagues. Today, Fitzpatrick remains an important figure in the industry and continues to support the warfighter in both his work and as a volunteer.

“With four decades of outstanding leadership as a blood banking expert matched only by his commitment to the warfighter, we are honored to present the 2020 ASBP Lifetime Achievement Award to Col. Fitzpatrick,” said Army Col. Audra L. Taylor, division chief, ASBP. “His career is truly great in scope and accomplishment.”

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.

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.
