“Comfort women” for the U.S.Army. 

“Comfort women” for the U.S.Army in occupied Japan.
After the WWⅡ, there were prostitution facilities only for the U.S.Army in occupied Japan.
It is said that occupation forces to be surprised at the frequent occurrence of the rape event demanded the installation of the facilities from Japan.
It was named, “Recreation and Amusement Association”.
The purpose of the “RAA” is to prevent the rape event and the venereal disease spread. It is the same as the comfort place of a Japanese army. (However, the “RAA”  seems not to have been able to achieve the purpose. )

“Comfort women” for the U.S.Army in the Vietnam war.
The prostitution facilities for the U.S. military existed also in the Vietnam war, too.
It is reported in detail to the book “Against Our Will” (1975) that Ms. Susan Brownmiller wrote.

The U.S.army doesn’t manage the facilities directly.
However, the army surgeons of the U.S.Army examines the prostitutes every week. It is the same as the comfort place of the Japanese army to do necessary ‘participation’.
