Veterans make annual donation at Blood Center of Wisconsin
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Two veterans who served long ago still make a point of giving. Every year they donate blood on Veterans Day.
"The blood here, wherever blood is donated, can reach other spots of the world," said Air Force veteran Joe Puca.
Puca served in the Air Force for 20 years. Dick Radomski served in Vietnam. As always, they both showed up at the Blood Center of Wisconsin to make their Veterans Day donation.
Radomski says he used to donate platelets too.
"The first time I donated platelets, my platelets went to a little baby," he said. "And they had to widen the doors for my head to get out of here, that's how proud I was."
Dick Radomski first started donating in 1958. Puca has been making his donations since 1996.
That's more than 83 years of contributions after their military service.
