According to an article published by CNN, Army officials at Fort Bragg in North Carolina have begun investigations in regards to allegations that members from the celebrated 82nd Airborne appeared on a gay porn website. The military-themed porn website belongs to a registered owner living in Fayetteville, NC, the city next to Fort Bragg. According to the article:
Authorities at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, have begun an inquiry into whether the soldiers' actions violated the military conduct code. Division spokeswoman Maj. Amy Hannah declined to say how many paratroopers are involved or identify their unit within the division. A defense official speaking on condition of anonymity said up to seven soldiers are involved. Hannah said soldiers questioned will be allowed to seek legal assistance, but she declined to say if any one had been charged. "Once the investigation is complete, the chain of command will take appropriate action," Hannah said. The military-theme Web site does not appear to make any direct reference to the 82nd Airborne or Fort Bragg. The registered owner of the Web site's domain name lists an address in Fayetteville, the city that adjoins Fort Bragg. E-mails to the registered owner were returned Friday as undeliverable, and the phone number listed on the domain-name registration is no longer in service. The Web site includes a disclaimer, asking users to agree that they are not agents of the U.S. government, Department of Defense, members of law enforcement or reporters.
The soldiers involved could face being discharged from service. Technorati Tags: , , , , , , , ,

I saw the article the other day and it left me wondering. From what I was able to get out of the AP article, pictures of the soldiers were found on a gay porn site. But it doesn't mention what the pictures depicted. I would think that solo pics or even group pics with nothing happening on a gay site doesn't necessarily mean that the soldiers in question are gay. And as a matter of details, it doesn't even mention if they are nude.

In any event, because they are most probably in the nude it probably will mean a discharge for them, gay or not.

Yeah... I think this issue has more to do with the fact that soldiers acted in a way unbecoming of members in the Military.

Gay... Straight... doesn't matter here... but I thought it was funny so I posted it.

Maybe it will help the Military realize there might just be more gay ppl in there than they realize.
I'm a military brat and went to high school in Fayetteville. It's not just the fact that it was a gay site. In the late 90s there was an incident where a woman (I think she was in the Army) posed on Humvees and with various equipment on Ft. Bragg in various stages of undress in the uniform. The Army was pissed to say the least.
