Why consider sperm testing and freezing?

Being a special operator is risky to their lives — and to their legacies. The NSW community deals with amplified hardship, including deploying annually and being away from their partner and family much of the time.

Infertility is twice as common among members of the military (compared to the general population), possibly due to the risk of injury or exposure to toxic chemicals.

Given the inherent danger of the military, freezing your youngest, healthiest sperm can be invaluable. And the uncertainty around deployment or mobilization makes sperm freezing a smart way to plan for the future, on your own or with your partner.

Currently, the military healthcare system does not help service members test or preserve their fertility. In partnership with the Military Family Building Coalition, Legacy is helping the most elite warriors preserve their legacy.

“Legacy’s ability to offer this kind of program to NSW operators in a way that accounts for their unique operational security and privacy concerns is a wonderful benefit. The family I have today is the result of cryopreservation; I personally understand the value that Legacy’s generous support is bringing to our military members and families.”
