Title

"Still at the Top of the Sick List"

Description

This poster informs audiences that even though VD rates in the military are down, syphilis and gonorrhea still cost the military many days lost.

"Though the Army's venereal disease rate rose in 1940 and '41, this trend was checked in 1942 and the rate for World War II is now much lower than in World War I. But syphilis and gonorrhea are still among the chief causes of lost time in the Army. The same is true of the Navy."
