I gave blood the first time when In was 18. I was in basic training in the army. Somewhere there was a air plane that went down. They marched us all in and we gave blood. I'm 63 and still giving blood. I gave a lot over the years. Records were lost once. But sence they started keeping tract, I'm up tp 9 gal. and 3 pints. I always wanted to be some kind of hero. I never was but giving blood makes me one. I'm helping keep someone alive. I'm making life easer for someone, or I may have saved someones life. Maybe it was a child. But giving blood makes me feel good.
