Hero, activist Eric Alva to appear at ECU

Military hero and gay rights activist Eric Alva will present, “The End of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’” at 3 p.m. Oct. 3 in Room 244, Mendenhall Student Center at East Carolina University.

The first American soldier injured in the Iraq War, Alva was hailed as an American hero. Upon his retirement from the military, Alva came out as a gay man. He became a gay rights activist and spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign, where he speaks about LGBT issues and the military.

Alva worked with Congress to repeal the controversial “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that prevented openly homosexual or bisexual individuals from serving in the U.S. military.

The event is sponsored by the Student Affairs Continuing Career Development Committee. Registration is available on OneStop under the university training tab
