Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni will host a press event aboard the air station in the morning on Tuesday, Mar 6, to cover the third bilateral MCAS Iwakuni Blood Drive, which will involve both Japanese workforce and U.S. personnel. 

The Japan Red Cross Yamaguchi Blood Center blood donation bus has long visited the air station twice a year, in March and August. Through much coordination and creativity leading up to bi-annual blood drive, organizers decided to transform the drive into a bilateral effort since 2017. The next blood drive is scheduled Tuesday, Mar 6, from 10:00 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Media representatives planning to attend the press event may sign up by contacting MCAS Iwakuni Communication Strategy and Operations Office by submitting an email to iwakuni.pao@usmc.mil with personnel information for the base access by no later than noon, Monday Mar 5.
