Starting next week, all U.S. Navy corpsmen serving with the Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC) overseas will be equipped with freeze-dried blood plasma. The decision to have all units carry the lifesaving blood product comes after it was used earlier this year to save the life of a wounded military member from an allied nation.

That sounds very promising. It could make good casualty care much easier to deliver in the field, which is always a good thing!

I had no idea you could freeze dry this stuff. Makes me suddenly wary of "astronaut icecream"…
