13,000 Fort Jackson South Carolina Soldiers Exhibit "Swine Flu" Symptoms (Army Suffers First H1N1 Soldier Death)

R.I.P. Spc. Christopher Hogg. I pray for your family and thank you for your service.

This is the Army's first death from H1N1 "swine flu" pandemic and hopefully, there are not any more. However, at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, 13,000 soldiers have exhibited H1N1 "swine flu" symptoms. Let's hope that this is merely the regular flu or cold and not something even more sinister.

Fort Jackson spokeswoman Karen Soule said as of Wednesday night, 51 of Fort Jackson's 13,000 soldiers had flu-like symptoms.

In 1976, most of the swine flu outbreaks occurred at military bases. In this pandemic, there will likely be some similar numbers, because the military has a mandatory vaccination program. These vaccines contain ingredients that have been shown to negatively affect human health. I believe that these mandatory vaccinations help spread the outbreak. Therefore, it is to be expected that we will see more deaths at the domestic military bases where the vaccination rates are highest.

The Army has programs for preventing and treating illnesses, and efforts were stepped up when swine flu surfaced in the spring. Measures include mandatory vaccinations, rearranging bunks head-to-toe, scrubbing quarters daily with bleach and laundering bedding every three weeks, May said.
