Drafted into the US Army in 1966, went to Vietnam Feb 1967 thru Feb 1968, discharged Sep 1968 Ft.Bragg NC. Went into Law Enforcement Mar 1969 and retired in 2003. I have 6 children,6 grandchildren and 2 great granddaughters. In 2005 I moved to the Southwest to enjoy retirement with wife. Everything was great.. no more snow to shovel and warm weather until May 2010. My wife thought I had a stroke because my speech was slurred. On Sept 23, 2010, I was diagnosed with ALS (Bulbar). I think the worst part of this disease for me is the ability not to speak.You can't let it take you over mentally. Think positive and keep fighting.
