Chair Force Engineer

There was a blood drive on base today to support the local community. However, in a month there will be an armed forces blood drive. With a mandatory six-week wait in between donations (which is traceable because both drives are part of United Blood Services,) I knew I couldn't do both.

The choice I faced was 1) help Albuquerque trailer trash, or 2) help the soldiers or Marines who are being wounded because they answered their nation's call on the field of battle. I think I'll pick #2 any day of the week.
