Service Connected Disability

Service Connected disabilities are disabilities determined by the VA to be an injury or illness that was incurred or aggravated during or due to active military service.

The VA has recognized Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease) diagnosed in veterans with 90 days or more of continuous active service in the military as being caused by their military service regardless of what branch they served in or when and where they served. For some unknown reason, research has shown that veterans have a 50-60% higher chance of being diagnosed with ALS than non-veterans.
