  • ASBP Blood Drive Jan. 9-12

    The Armed Services Blood Program and the cadets of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point are joining forces to hold one of the largest blood drives of the year.

    From Jan. 9-12, cadets, faculty and staff of the Academy will “sacrifice” some of their blood to help save lives.

    As the official blood program of the U.S. military, the ASBP is a tri-service organization responsible for providing blood and blood products to deployed service members in the heart of the battlefield.

    While ASBP blood recipients are most often thought of as deployed service members injured in the line of duty, the ASBP also provides blood for service members and their families back home and in military treatment facilities around the globe. Read More
