Donor Stories

 There’s a link between donating blood and serving one’s country. That’s how I see it.


As a U.S. Marine, I feel that blood donation involves making a sacrifice for others. And that, is patriotism at its best.


I made my first blood donation in high school, and then started giving from time-to-time through local blood drives. Although my military service takes me far from home and the familar places where I usually give blood and platelets, I continue to do what I can to keep America’s blood supply strong. I routinely writes letters to the American Red Cross, and I am eager to share with others the importance of donating blood. And when I'm on leave, I visit the donor center where I've rolled up my sleeves in the past to give another donation.  Hopefully I can inspire others to give for a lifetime.
