U.S. Senator Patty Murray, Chairman of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee, recently chaired a hearing to examine health and benefits legislation. At the hearing, Tracy Keil, the spouse of a severely wounded OIF veteran discussed her family's experience with VA's fertility services. Veterans who have severe reproductive and urinary tract injuries and spinal cord injuries (SCI) often need highly specialized treatments and procedures like in-vitro fertilization (IVF) to conceive.
