ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insights regarding Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) U.S. Navy veteran Ellen Kaatz, who participated at the 3rd National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic in San Diego, California on September 2010 despite having Lou Gehrig's disease. She says that Kaatz started to develop symptoms of the disease while working as nurse at the Groton Outpatient Clinic in Connecticut. According to Kaatz, people should try to discover the unknown as it is good for the soul and attitude.
