LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - The Oklahoma Blood Institute will host a Veterans Day blood drive this Thursday in Lawton.

Blood donors will not just get a free t-shirt, but veterans and active service members will also get a special blood donor challenge coin.

Family members of veterans will also get a “Grateful for the vet in my life” sticker and all donors will get an American flag lapel pin.
