Fort Riley, Kansas – From August 29 to 31, Fort Riley, home of the 1st Infantry Division, will be conducting a crucial blood drive in collaboration with the Armed Services Blood Program. Held at the Long Fitness Center, the event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

This drive underscores the significance of volunteer donors, as the Military Healthcare System depends on their generosity to meet daily blood requirements.

Open to active duty military, veterans, retirees, civilian personnel, families, and the community at large, this drive exemplifies the spirit of unity and service ingrained in the military community.
