How are you #StillServing?
I continue to donate blood on an 8-week interval. Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak, I’ve donated in March, May and July.
Why do you do it?
My first blood donation was at the age of 18 years old at Boot Camp, MCRD San Diego. My drill instructor selected everyone with Type O+ blood and sent us to donate blood. Since then, I’ve donated blood for over 55 years. It’s the least that I can do for Americans and those who are in need of a most precious gift.
