Honor Veterans -- Even the Inconvenient Ones

Major Alan G. Rogers was the first out gay man to die in the occupation of Iraq.

Not the way he would have wanted to be remembered -- for one thing, I'm sure he wasn't keen on the dying-at-an-early-age part.

But he was, even though the Department of Defense would rather you didn't hear about him.

Know what, DoD? Tough shit.

Sounds interesting, but the story vanished.

Didn't an illegal alien die serving in Iraq early on, also?
