FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. – The 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) hosted a blood drive March 6 in support of the local Red Cross at Fort Campbell, Ky.

More than 80 Soldiers and family members from The Legion and the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) selflessly volunteered to help save a life.

According to Carolyn Petty, a Donor Recruitment Representative for the Red Cross in Nashville, there were 60 productive units of blood donated to the Red Cross throughout the day which can help the organization save up to 180 lives in the future.
