While home for break, my roommate and I discovered this little gem on board the U.S.S. Texas, advising sailors to look out for disease ridden “good-time” girls.
It seems venereal disease was quite the problem for our lads at sea, requiring all sailors to visit the so-called “pro room” both before and after shore leave. Additionally, several of the 28 toilets for 1600 crew members had red seats for those seamen afflicted with STIs. Precious.
