The Army’s Medical Laboratory Specialists (68 Kilo) perform a variety of duties, including blood component and chemistry analysis, in addition to blood collection, bank and distribution responsibilities. Their work is never done on a busy FOB. 24/7, SSGT C and SGT V are available to ensure expedient analysis of blood specimens for all emergencies. They also maintain, check and recheck the blood bank that we have at FOB Salerno. As you might imagine, this is a critical component to the rapid care we provide for our wounded. Thanks to her, and all the blood donors back home. Her work and your volunteer donations are life savers – literally.
