ALMOST! VD; U. S. Original Military Poster(321 views)
Description: ALMOST VD; 1946 military poster by Franz Oswald Schiffers. Almost! VD, the 1946 U.S. World War II (WWII) health poster warning soldiers overseas of the consequences of venereal disease. ALMOST! VD featuring art of a soldier with VD standing on a wharf as he watches a ship sail home to America. . Note that U.S. soldiers in Europe were endlessly warned by the Army that they needed to stay away from local girls and prostitutes because of the dangers of catching venereal disease! At the end of the war, the risk to soldiers became even greater, because any soldier with VD could not be sent home until they were cured, so, if they caught VD, they risked having to make very embarrassing explanations to their families, girlfriends, or wives, saying exactly why they could not be sent home along with the other men!
