At the end of each blood drive, the blood is sent by military airplane to the collection center at Fort Bliss, Texas, for immediate processing. The test tubes of blood also collected from each donor are sent to Tempe for testing. The results are sent to Fort Bliss in 24-hours. Any blood deemed unusable is pulled. The rest is packed and shipped wherever it is needed.
