If this little tip saves someone else some time, I'll be happy! My DS has been filling out required forms for Army and his AROTC scholarship. One of the questions on the forms asks for blood type which he did not know . His pediatrician also did not know the answer. They suggested we request hospital records from where he was born because they learn a persons blood type during newborn screening, since the newborn records had been archived it took some time to retrieve his blood type. With all the paperwork he has been through, this one little thing could have saved him some time.
