"Health Helps: Bill and Joe Go On Leave"


This comic shows the positive choices soldiers make when a town provides them with "wholesome recreation" and social events, nice places to stay, and "nice" girls to spend time with. At the end of the comic, Bill and Jim comment that they enjoyed themselves and there is no need to get a medical exam. There is also text accompanying the strip that gives more information.
