Branch: Marines
Served: 1984 - 1997
Hometown: Emerald Isle, NC
I am proud to have served my country in the first Gulf War & if asked to do so again knowing ALS would be the result, I would. That said, my ALS not only affects me but my whole family. I have a wonderful wife & two beautiful children who have never known their father without ALS. I testified before Congress in 1996 about the effect of ALS. As a result, a committee was formed to address the need for service connection for Gulf War Veterans with ALS. I am a proud American and Marine & strongly support all efforts to learn what causes ALS to be more common in those who serve in our military.
