Supporting the Troops – Armed Services Blood Program Blood Drive

During World War II, the United Service Organizations (USO) provided recreation and aid services for the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and renowned entertainer, Bob Hope, began entertaining American troops with the USO “Camp Shows.” This blood drive offers an opportunity to continue that spirit of community support for the military.


The Armed Services Blood Program (ASBP) is the official program for the U.S. military and blood donations at this event will specifically support ill or injured service members, their families and retirees at the Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and U.S. Central Command combat support. ASBP will have protective COVID-19 health and safety measures in place. Blood donors should allow approximately one hour from entry to the free “juice, coffee and donuts” exit.


Show your support for Soldiers and their families and register for an appointment. Your registration also serves as your general admission ticket to visit the Museum’s traveling exhibit, “So Ready for Laughter: The Legacy of Bob Hope” as produced by The National WWII Museum.
