ALS in the Military

I've mentioned this in a previous post, but the ALS Association recently released this public service announcement about the correlation between ALS and military service.  Beyond the medical/scientific reason(s) of why this is occurring, it is such a shame that the men and women who volunteer to defend our nation are then susceptible to such a horrible disease.  The U.S. Government (Department of Defense (DOD)) is aware and has already dedicated funding towards ALS research.  My only hope is that awareness continues to spread and the DOD doesn't stop until a cure is found.
