Albany-- It takes just a pint to support the soldiers overseas. A small group of Marines from MCLB-Albany gave blood Friday.
They were among the first to make a donation after the Department of Defense announced this week that the Red Cross will be supplying blood to the military.
"It makes us all feel good that we are giving blood for people who really need it and if its our own people, being Marines, makes us feel that much better," said Cpl. Richard Zuraski.
The military has a limited blood collection operation. But, the need for blood products increases during times of war, so the Red Cross will fill the need.
