Now, HIV-positive people are allowed to stay in the military unless they develop AIDS.
I also found a blog with this in it ......
"Hello, I read a recent question answered about an Air Force capt who was diagnosed with HIV. I am a current Army soldier, and I wanted to let you know that the military's policy is that you cannot initially join the military with HIV, but if you test positive for it once you are in, you are allowed to stay in. You will not be able to deploy overseas, but you can stay here in the US. You can continue your enlistment as long as you would like, until you get too sick to do your job. There used to be a prohibition on HIV+ military members, but it was repealed in."

As long as they are not in combat I don't see the issue. HIV isn't Leprosy.
