VA wrongly tells veterans they have ALS
At least 1,200 veterans across the country have been mistakenly told by the Veterans Administration that they suffer from a fatal neurological disease. Denise Nichols, the vice president of the National Gulf War Resource Center, said the VA is blaming a coding error for the mistake. Letters dated Aug. 12 were intended to notify veterans who have Lou Gehrig's disease of disability benefits available to them.
