You cannot join the military in the US if you are HIV positive. If you are found to be HIV positive while you are on active duty, you will either be discharged (likely) or put on some type of desk duty (unlikely unless you are high-ranking or otherwise important). I know there was at least one HIV positive Marine in my squadron, possibly more. We were told to treat any blood spill like it may contain HIV, just to be completely safe.
