My father entered the Air Force to "see the world". With the exception of his training, he spent his entire 4 years of active duty at the Brunswick Naval Air Station, 6 miles from the home he grew up in! When he left the service, he left with the rank of Airman 1st Class. My father's battle with ALS was a short one - 19 months. He was diagnosed in April 2011 and passed away in November 2012. He remained 'stable" for the first year, but the last 7 months was a quick decline. He fought valiantly and maintained his sense of humor right up until the bitter, painful end.
