Jon served in the Army during the Vietnam era. He was fortunately stationed for the most part in Washington, D.C. We married in 1986 and have two children. He was diagnosed in March 2010 and participated in everything he could with the kids and I. He/we belonged to the Golden West Chapter of the ALS Association, participating in monthly support groups and other events. Jon was very brave and dedicated in sharing the services available to Vets and his experience as he walked the ALS road. Jon died on 11/30/11 of respiratory failure, 18 months after his diagnosis.
