which can be also be viewed on our website at and on our YouTube channel at, highlights the research which has found that our military heroes are twice as likely to develop ALS as the general public. The video is part of a nationwide awareness campaign that The Association has launched in advance of Veterans Day on November 11.
Additional videos will be released in the coming weeks and The Association will conduct other awareness and outreach activities that draw attention and support to our cause.
