Reported cases of COVID-19 have surpassed the number of sexually transmitted diseases on Fort Hood, the largest military base in the U.S. This is the first time since 1776 that an infection has taken more Soldiers out of formation than The Clap.
“Over the course of history, Disease and Non-Battle Injuries (DNBI) have taken more Soldiers out of the fight than any other single cause,” explained Doctor (Colonel) Steve Jeffries of the Army Medical Lab. “The number one cause of DNBI is, of course, sexually transmitted disease, followed by alcohol poisoning, platoon-level sports, and talking back to a Vietnam-era Command Sergeant Major.”
Given that Fort Hood and its nearby Killen, Texas was recently designated “The Best Place to Marry a Stripper,” it’s still a surprise that COVID rates are surpassing STDs. “We suspect that this is because COVID is driving an unintentional positive externality of actually driving down the STD rate,” Jeffries explained. “Simply put, if Joe is home with the ‘rona, he’s not out banging a stripper,”
Way to see the bright side, Colonel Jeffries.

DNBI is legit, though. Be careful out there!
