In a federal lawsuit filed this week, U.S. Navy veteran from South Carolina says he ended up with “full-blown AIDS,” because government health care workers never informed him of his positive test result in 1995. He says the test was done as part of standard lab tests at a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs medical center in Columbia, South Carolina. A V.A. spokeswoman says the agency typically does not comment on pending litigation. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
