The Army Blood Program — a service component of the tri-service Armed Services Blood Program — is currently involved in an initiative to collect licensed fresh frozen plasma to be converted to freeze-dried plasma. The main goal of the freeze-dried plasma initiative is to significantly increase the survival rate of Soldiers on the battlefield.
Today, six of the ASBP’s donor centers — located at Fort Bragg, N.C.; Fort Gordon, Ga.; Fort Sam Houston, Texas; Joint Base Lewis-Chord, Wash.; Landstuhl, Germany; and the Tripler Army Medical Center, Hawaii — are participating in the freeze-dried program. If you would like to donate, contact the local blood donor recruiter
at those locations for more information.
