There Are Heroes and Then There Are Superheroes in the Battle Against ALS

We lost a superhero, Retired Brigadier General Thomas Mikolajcik. He fought for the rights of all of his fellow veterans whose military service came with a terrible fringe benefit -- Lou Gehrig's Disease. Thanks to General Mikolajcik, those veterans receive their disability benefits and the Department of Defense is very aware of the need for further research to explain the military-ALS connection.
