No effort spared to bring home seriously wounded Soldier
Service members wait in line to donate blood at Craig Joint Theater Hospital, Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan as part of a "walking blood bank" for a fellow service member being transferred to Brooke Army Medical Center, San Antonio, Texas, Aug. 18, 2019. A request for volunteers with a specific blood type was filled within minutes, providing fresh whole blood to sustain the patient during the 20-hour direct flight home.
