Navy transforms into pioneer in contraceptive care

Recommended Posts

The days of “Love Boat” ridicule for the Navy over unplanned pregnancies are a distant memory now.

The destroyer tender USS Arcadia gained the nickname during the Gulf War when at least 36 of its service women had to be transferred off the ship while deployed to the Persian Gulf due to pregnancies.

In the years since, the Navy has surpassed the other services in providing access to contraceptives, including those considered the most foolproof and effective.
