ANCHORAGE, Alaska - A recent spike in HIV infections has been linked to military men in Fairbanks.

The Anchorage Daily News (http://bit.ly/ybxrzi ) says newly-released public health data shows that the increase is linked to military men finding sex partners online.

Data shows that the outbreak involves nine cases of HIV infection from Jan. 1, of last year to Jan. 31 of this year.

The state Department of Health and Social Services says from 2007 through 2010, the number of HIV cases reported in the Fairbanks area was fairly stable.

However, that changed this last year. Health officials say of the nine people infected last year, eight were men who had sex with other men. Seven were either in the Army in Fairbanks or had sexual partners in the military.

LOL. They spent too much time spent on the escort section of backpage.com or adult friend finder. Probably all sexed the same local woman with HIV.

So, if someone in the military, and contracts HIV like this cluster of homosexuals in Fairbanks, will they be eligible for veteran’s benefits, and will their HIV be considered a Service Connected Disabliltiy which will qualify them for lifelong benefits?

They will get out of the military and claim 100% VA disability and milk the system for the rest of their lives. They (Homo, queer bait, rump rangers)stick it in each others tool box but it’s us that gets screwed!

Not only that, but while they remain on active duty, they will be classified as "non-deployable," so if their unit is sent overseas, they will remain in a stateside assignment, while somebody else gets to go in their place.

I wouldn't be surprised these days if the military lets them finish out their careers in non-deployable desk duty billets and then lets them retire with a pension (as well as VA disability).

Good. I hope this keeps happening. When the services have a base full of non deployable homos maybe something will be done about it.

Didn't see your post when I wrote mine. GMTA and all that.

I used to joke with some of my junior sailors when they'd ask, "is it possible to stay on shore duty all the time?" and I'd say, "yeah, get AIDS." Not really much of a joke anymore.

Homosexuals, who are about 1.5% of the population, contribute to about 65% of the reported STDs in the USA.

“Health officials say of the nine people infected last year, eight were men who had sex with other men” Now the reporter should have added 89% of the new HIV cases involved homosexual men having sex with homosexual men!

and yet again the MSM will shut up about this, the GOP will say nothing and the sheep just sit there thinking the queer agenda is alright because they have a pal who is a homo and they’re nice.

sigh.

Get back to how the military was, no PC, no homosexuals and promote those who deserve it not because of their liberal , homo , race, gender etc

Probably not. The likelihood of a woman transmitting HIV is extremely small (possible through open wounds, but very unlikely). The most common pathway to acquiring AIDS is through the injection of tainted fluid into the recipient's body.

The real problem is homosexuals in the military.

and this is just in one place, now what are the figures in the military in every branch and this alone is good enough to get rid of letting homosexuals serve openly.

Honestly, though, I’m shocked that the article actually mentioned that most cases were the result of homo behavior.

I didn’t know Santorum said he would ban openly serving homosexuals, when did he say it please?

I know he is against it from his views as should all on the right and most on the left but never heard him say that

There’s absolutely no chance that will happen unless we get a conservative into the White House.

"I didn’t know Santorum said he would ban openly serving homosexuals, when did he say it please?"

Did you miss the debate last September when the Obama DoD implemented the repeal of DADT? There was the YouTube question from the gay soldier:

MEGYN KELLY of Fox News: So what -- what -- what would you do with soldiers like Stephen Hill? I mean, he's — now he's out. He's — you know, you saw his face on camera. When he first submitted this video to us, it was without his face on camera. Now he's out. So what would you do as president?

SANTORUM: I think it's -- it's -- it's -- look, what we're doing is playing social experimentation with -- with our military right now. And that's tragic.

I would -- I would just say that, going forward, we would -- we would reinstitute that policy, if Rick Santorum was president, period.

That policy would be reinstituted. And as far as people who are in -- in -- I would not throw them out, because that would be unfair to them because of the policy of this administration, but we would move forward in -- in conformity with what was happening in the past, which was, sex is not an issue. It is -- it should not be an issue. Leave it alone, keep it -- keep it to yourself, whether you’re a heterosexual or a homosexual.

Rush Limbaugh and the other so-called “conservative” yappers will say nothing. ( Cowards!) They are entertainers. If and when true tyranny comes to this nation he and the other yappers will roll over like trained dogs.

AGREED

Many talk show hosts as as much cowards or phony’s as the GOP but many on the right fail to see it.

Look at the biggest fraud Hannity ,I stopped watching him some time ago and why anyone else does and thinks he is a conservatives shows why we have problems on our side..
On his show last night he had of all people Sally Kohn

Yes the media matters, Soros homosexual activist stooge who has denounced America, Capitalism etc

First it was bad enough FOX hiring her some weeks ago but now Hannity has her on his show and the sheep of our side just sit there not knowing about this so called woman, not bothering to do some research on her and never sending mail in to the shows or the network telling them that while she is on you shall not watch.

For anyone who still has no clue about the phony Hannity and who this Sally Kohn is then here.

http://www.infiltratednation.com/2012/01/fox-news-hires-soros-funded-activist.html

watching her or the phony conservatives or listening to their radio show just enables the establishment and the left
