ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's struggle against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. He joined the U.S. Armed Forces at age 19 and after a couple of years since he left the U.S. Navy, he was diagnosed to have ALS. Now that his niece and future son-in-law are in the U.S. military, he worried that they might go through what he had experienced. This is because, evidence reveals that people in the military have the greater risk of getting ALS.
