I guess they won't be going back to Iraq
If you're gay, they won't send you back
7 Soldiers Charged With Internet Sex
RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 24, 2006
(AP) The Army has charged seven paratroopers from the celebrated 82nd Airborne Division with engaging in sex acts in video shown on a Web site, authorities said Friday.
Three of the soldiers face courts-martial on charges of sodomy, pandering and engaging in sex acts for money, according to a statement released Friday by the military.
Four other soldiers, whose names were not released, received nonjudicial punishments.
The Army has recommended that all be discharged.
The charges do not mention the name of the site, but the division has said previously it was investigating allegations that soldiers appeared on a gay pornography Web site. A spokesman for the division said Friday the charges are a result of that investigation.
The military-themed Web site on which the Army has said soldiers appeared does not make any direct reference to the division or Fort Bragg, a sprawling post about 70 miles south of Raleigh.
"As far as we're concerned, it's isolated to the unit, and our investigation determined that these seven individuals were the only ones" involved, said 82nd Airborne spokesman Maj. Thomas Earnhardt.
Gee, why would soldiers do this?
And if they are gay, they were certainly tough enough for jump school, Iraq and Afghanistan, and there were no issues of unit cohesion.
