Military Veterans


Resources for Military Veterans, Families & Survivors

The ALS Association is working everyday to support people with ALS and their families, including our heroes who have served in the military and who are approximately twice as likely to develop ALS as those who have not served.  

This site is designed specifically for veterans with ALS, their families and survivors. Here you will learn what benefits are available, how you can apply for benefits, and receive answers to frequently asked questions about the new rules.

Also available on this site are links to resources and tools veterans can use to take part in the advocacy efforts that  make a difference in the fight against ALS – efforts that have helped to improve benefits for veterans and advanced research for a treatment and cure.  If you are a veteran with ALS or the survivor of a veteran with ALS, we encourage you to visit our Wall of Honor and share your story. We also encourage you to join our Roll Call of Veterans and learn how you can help us find a treatment and ensure veterans receive the care they need, deserve and have earned.
