And on a topical note, seems that GIs were so under fire, that they were dying to get away to the front for a bit of peace & quiet (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/4394494.stm) :D

The Walter Reed Medical Museam had a great display of WWI and WWII posters aimed at soliders about this very problem.

Wish I could find copies. :(

They were great.

War time rationing meant civilians in the UK were short on a lot of stuff the GIs got issued. Young horny guys mixed with women desperate for extras like nylon, chocolate, canned meats equals alot of prostitution.

My Dad joined the Navy in the 50's and one of the first things they were shown was a particularly graphic film about std's and the dangers of consorting with loose women. He looked pained talking about it 40 years later so it must have been pretty horrific.

When I did TDY in Panama there was a manditory 50's era film everyone had to see showing the effects of various VD and a bunch of nasty puss and ooze. It was designed to keep guys away from the local girls or at least scare them enough to wear a jimmy.

Yeah, you don't want the loose kind, no friction.
