The system of laws governing the armed forces is distinct from the federal and state regulations typically imposed on civilian populations. Military laws acknowledge that, compared to civilians, service members are subject to different duties and standards of conduct based on their roles as members of the national defense. Military policies and regulations – most of them codified in the Uniform Code of Military Justice – set forth consequences for conduct by service members living with or at risk of HIV.
