    re: “Jeez, based on these posters you’d think all the women back then were hookers or something. ”

    Duh! These ads ARE warning military guys not to sleep with prostitutes. That’s the whole point!

    But, seeing as how it’s the 1940s, no one can just come out and say “prostitute” on a poster. But what else do you think “procurable women” are? The word on one poster is “procurable”, as in purchasable, not “available” as in free from other commitments.
