Global SOF Foundation

In this episode, we discuss military family building and fertility issues. While we DO talk about freezing sperm samples, more importantly we discuss the breadth of the family planning issue in the SOF community, how it's impacting retention, and what policy changes Congress needs to make to support our Special Ops families. 

Our experts today come from the Military Family Building Coalition and Legacy:

  • Ellen Gustafson, MFBC Co-Founder
  • Katy Bell Hendrickson, MFBC Co-Founder
  • John Crowley, Legacy Military Affairs

Listen to hear from these three experts about this issue and why it's so important that we support their efforts to change US policy on military fertility options.
