This UL is obviously geared towards encouraging safe sex/celebacy through fear of contracting a deadly desease and I've heard various tellings of the tale all of which were scary. I wanted to share an account of this story that took place in 90-92 at Ft.Carson Co when I was stationed there. We were briefed by the 1sgt. that a hispanic girl about 5' tall with waist length hair was picking up GI's at the bars on post and sleeping with them in hotels. When the guys woke up they would find "welcome to the AIDS Club" on the mirror in red lipstick. They even had composite sketches and the girl was arrested eventually. I really don't think the Army was pulling this just to get us to "keep it in our pants" especially with briefings from the MP's and the news coverage- which granted I didn't see firsthand except for a newspaper clipping as I was shipped down range when the arrest and what not happened. I have a hard time believing this could not be absolutely true despite that there are countless other versions of the story that have circulated. Does anyone else have simialar stories or any other helpful insight to this UL/true story?

quote:There have been actual cases of the HIV-infected engaging in unprotected sex without first informing their partners of their condition. ... Such tragedies are real, but the stuff of legends, the deliberate infection of another as a way of exacting revenge on an entire sex has proved elusive to pin down
OTOH, I have a friend who was in the Navy 1979-1983 and he tells of being on an aircraft carrier in the Medeterranean. He says they were shown films about STDs ("VD" back then) that were pretty scary and graphic. So maybe the military is just trying to scare the soldiers into keeping it in their pants.

Funny that is mentioned because someone posted the link about a man who had pulled over because he was drunk and the cop was hit by a drunk driver. On that same page was a woman who was arrested for having unprotected sex with men and she had AIDS. There are many cases of people who know they have some incurable sexual disease and spread it but it doesn't match the urban legend of saying, welcome to AIDS world.
