Donating blood saves lives. The Keesler Blood Donor Center strives to supply the need of blood for military members.
The donor center has a quota for collecting blood and they are always looking for more blood to distribute. Alexander Stokes, 81st Diagnostics and Therapeutics Squadron medical lab technician, speaks on the importance of donating blood.
“The blood that is donated directly supports the down-range mission,” said Stokes. “It’s blood for our brothers and sisters in arms. One day, it could be any of us that need that blood.”
