Unique Blood Drive Benefits Soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan

The 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, will be hosting a blood drive, sponsored by the Armed Service Blood Program and the Columbus Lions arena football team, scheduled for June 5 at the Kelley Hill Recreation Center, Fort Benning, Ga.

This blood drive is unique because donated blood from the Soldiers and Families of Kelley Hill will be sent to Iraq or Afghanistan, helping Soldiers, within a week of collection.

In support of the event, players and dancers from the Columbus Lions will be on Sledgehammer Field for a meet-and-greet during the drive, from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m.

Soldiers, Family Members and the public are invited to donate at the Kelley Hill Recreation, June 5, from 6 a.m. through 6 p.m. For more information contact the 3rd HBCT Family Readiness Support Assistant, Andrea Young at or 705-544-5712.
