va funds fertility services
ombat woundedVeterans hoping to start a family but have
struggledwith infertility nowhave relief withVA funded fer-
tility services. Because of the nature of combat, particularly due
to improvised explosive devices, Veterans have suffered great-
er rates of spinal cord and genital injuries than in past conflicts.
As a result Veterans have been unable to conceive naturally.
Fertility treatments and adoption costs are not only costly but
in many instances prohibitive. As a result of recent legislation
the VA is required to pay for assisted reproductive technolo-
gy such as in vitro fertilization and provide compensation for
adoption expenses. It is up to the VA now to quickly put into
effect rules and policies to ensure that this benefit is available
to all Veterans that qualify. While this benefit is new to Veter-
ans it is available to active-duty service members through the
Department of Defense. For qualifying combat wounded Vet-
erans this could be a dream come true with the now ability to
start a family.
Thank you for your service.

game. She led the Lady Eagles with almost 11 rebounds a game and was the team’s
best defender, according to Head Coach Jason Cantwell, who added, “Talia’s ability to
play bigger than her height was one of themain reasons for our success this past sea-
son. Talia is a coach’s dream; she comes to practice ready to work and improve each
and every day. I was proud to see her hard work pay off this season as she was nom-
inated by all coaches in the league as a consensus first team All-Star. That’s as big a
compliment as any player can get.”
Lamadzema earned her fourth consecutive All Star award and her first MVP trophy.
Lamadzema, who had become the school’s all-time leading scorer at 1,516 career
points in the final game of the season, could become the first five-time CAC Basketball

son, she also set a school recordwith 43 points scored against Lowell Catholic in Janu-
ary. Coach Cantwell added,“Having a player as gifted asMenel is a pleasure. Sheworks
as hard as anyone to improve, and I was proud when the coaches in the league voted
her MVP. I look forward to working with her going forward [as] she begins to prep for
her senior year and

collegiate level. She
has a realistic shot
