University in Chicago holds an "Operation: Do Ask, Do Tell" symposium for LGBT veterans

For the record, I wanted to note that I found an account of a conference called “Operation: Do Ask, Do Tell” at Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) which was held Oct. 20, 2012 (not 2013, at least in this account) in Chicago, to help LGBT veterans network, particular in areas of employment and benefits.  The link is here. The school is said to be “military friendly”. The conference emphasized services for trangender veterans.

 I recall a transgender Naval Intelligence agent appearing on Scott Peck's radio show in Washington DC in 1993;  she was forced to leave the uniformed service but got the same job as a civilian employee.
