ADAPTATIONS LISTED BELOW BACKGROUND

Background: This hero workout is dedicated to Major Alan Rogers (he/him) who was a U.S. Army Intelligence Officer,⁠ ordained pastor, and civil rights activist for the LGBTQ⁠ community. He was also the first known gay combat fatality of⁠ Operation Iraqi Freedom.⁠

Major Rogers was born on September 21, 1967. After completing high school, Rogers joined the ROTC⁠ program at the University of Florida and accepted a commission⁠ into the United States Army after graduating with a Bachelor of⁠ Arts in Religion in 1995.⁠

In 2001, Rogers was charged with commanding a military⁠ intelligence company based out of Waegwan, South Korea⁠ and in 2004, he moved to Washington, D.C., where he went on to receive a Master of Public Policy degree from Georgetown⁠ University, with his master’s thesis focusing on how the US⁠ military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy affected recruitment and⁠ retention for military officers. ⁠

He wrote, “Denying service members the right to serve freely and openly violates basic dignity and⁠ respect of the human experience and puts our national security at risk.” Rogers’s thesis adviser,⁠ Mark Nadel, described Rogers as “an officer with leadership qualities that made him think, ‘This is a⁠ guy I’m going to hear from in 10 years, and he’s going to be a general.”⁠

In 2007, shortly after completing his thesis, he was deployed to Iraq and was tragically killed while⁠ on foot patrol by an improvised explosive device (IED) on January 27, 2008. The subsequent coverage of his death in the⁠ media sparked a debate over the effect of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and what⁠ information should be included in the biography of a gay military person killed in action.⁠

The workout was designed by OUTWOD @outwod as part of the OUTMemorial fundraising campaign.⁠
