A short article from the World War I pages of THE STARS & STRIPES that reported on the number of sexually diseased American soldiers who were treated during the war and the immediate post-war period.

What is missing from this report was an anecdote involving General John Pershing, who upon hearing that his army was being depleted by social decease, quickly called for the posting of Military Policemen at each bordello to discourage all further commerce. The immediate results of this action were pleasing to many in the American senior command however the next problem concerned the growing number of venereal cases within the ranks of the Military Police. More than likely, this was one of the several reasons why Pershing wished to remove the Army Headquarters from Paris.

When the Doughboys complained, they complained heavily about their uniforms; read about it here.
