My name is Tyler Wilson and I was wounded in Afghanistan in May 2005 while serving with the 173rd airborne brigade and. my infertility journey started there and is continuing till now and into the future. I've been fightingto get this covered because the VA doesn't cover any of my fertility and it's very dishearteningjust to have fought for the country and essentially when your time of need comesup, they have their back turned to you For years this fight has been going on with infertility issues with service members and veterans and you know lawmakers, unfortunately,a lot of the times they'll say one thing and then vote another way and we're here at AdvocacyDay to put a face to those names not just.
