The Tripler Donor Center collected more than 7,300 units of blood last year. According to Army 1st Lt. Mark W. Preston, the center’s officer-in-charge, the majority of blood donated to the Armed Services Blood Program in Hawaii remains on island. Per month, 160 units of blood are sent to Iraq and Afghanistan to treat injured U.S. personnel and another 20 units are sent of support security and humanitarian operations in the Pacific. ::r::::n::There is no way of knowing how much blood will be needed on an annual basis but Preston says a drop is never wasted and there is always a need for blood.
