      During the hearing in SA, a veteran of the Iraq War was booed for testifying during the hearing.  He supports the current Administrations stance on improving GLBT rights in our city.  

        Former Marine Staff Sergeant Eric Alva — a San Antonio native who was the first American service member seriously injured in the Iraq War when he stepped on a land mine in March 2003 and lost his right leg — was speaking in favor of a proposed addition to the city’s non-discrimination law that would add protections for sexual orientation, gender identity and veteran status.

    But as Alva began to deliver his remarks, many in the crowd of approximately 200 people attending the council meeting began to boo.
