We present a case study that investigated the effects of an open gender transition within a US military organization. The research subject, a retired military officer and civil servant, made a gender transition while remaining in the same job with the same chain of command and within the same organization. Using interview data, we analyze the effect of how an open gender transition impacted an active-duty military unit.
