Not just one ship often times the entire Fleet.
12 September 2000 | by yenloSee all my reviews

Another hilariously outdated educational film this time geared towards and for the members of Uncle Sams Canoe Club. It may have come across in 1942 as scary but by todays standards this could almost play as a lost episode of Mchales Navy. Actually there are many periods in the history of the U.S. Navy that a film of this type could have been titled "USS VD FLEET of SHAME" especially when the U.S. Navy made regular port visits to Subic Bay in the P.I. Today the stakes are a little higher when it comes to U.S. Naval personnel contracting an STD. It now involves something called AIDS.
