Army Cadet Ronnisha Gates-Dukes and several other Minnesota National Guard Soldiers with the Cottage Grove based 204th Area Support Medical Company donate blood during their drill weekend April 6. "It's always about saving lives," said Bert Krinke, a Donor Recruitment Representative with the North Central Blood Services of the American Red Cross. "Every two seconds there is a blood transfusion in the United States and there is no substitute for blood."
