  • Air Force Blood Drive takes off again

    Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, North Carolina, has been holding blood drives with the Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune Blood Donor Center since February 2013. With multiple blood drive coordinators over the years, the blood drives have continually grown. This trend has remained the same as a new coordinator, Airman Anthony Federico, conducts his first blood drive with the Armed Services Blood Program. “This was my first blood drive with the ASBP,” Federico said. “It’s a good feeling knowing you coordinated a blood drive that has such a huge impact with the armed forces. Being able to donate is an even greater feeling because that blood someday in the near/far future will have the potential to save a life.” These blood drives produce on average about 35-40 units collected per drive and are still growing. Federico’s drive was a huge success with 54 people registered and 47 units of blood collected. Since a single donation has the potential to save up to three lives, that means that 140 potential lives could be saved.
