Help soldiers and their families this Fourth of July weekend

This Fourth of July--you can help our military and their families.
 
 
Armed Services Blood Program serves as the sole provider of blood for the United States military, but works with civilian agencies. It collects blood, plasma and platelets for service members worldwide. 
 
 
Texas is the only state with three blood donor centers in it--San Antonio at Ft. Sam Houston, El Paso at Ft. Bliss and Killeen at Ft. Hood.
