Armed Services Blood Program

The Armed Services Blood Program (ASBP) - also known as the Military Blood Program - is the official military provider of blood products to U.S. armed forces.

As a joint operation among the military services (Army, Navy, Air Force), the ASBP:

  • Provides quality blood products for service members, veterans and their families in both peace and war.
  • Collects, processes, stores, distributes, and transfuses blood worldwide.
  • Work closely with our civilian counterparts in times of need.

Service members are often confused and erroneously believe that a civilian collection agency provides blood products to the military community. That is not true. The ASBP is one of four organizations that ensure our nation has a safe, potent blood supply.

Blood and Blood Products

Blood and blood products are used for patients of all ages for many reasons—from cancer patients to those with battlefield injuries, military members and their families depend on blood donors every day.

Your donation can save:

  • A service member injured in action
  • A child with cancer
  • A family member in need of heart surgery

It's easy to save lives! By committing to give blood at least once a season, you help ensure that blood is available when it is needed most.
