Cav troopers donate blood, help fellow soldiers

Plasma is the component in blood that adds volume to it. Kallo, a native of North Bellmore, N.Y., participated in his unit's blood drive, which goes to Afghanistan but also gets used here for dependents of Department of Defense employees. Soldiers who donate plasma and or platelets can donate every two weeks whereas soldiers who give blood have to wait 56 days. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Angel Turner, 1st Cavalry Division PAO)
