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

  1. With havin so much content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either
    created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.
    Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate
    it.
