Results: The pre-test of the soldiers of the rankings was a total score average of 11.66 ± 4.18, and the level of knowledge was low. The total score average of the post-test Sex Level for the Sexually Transmitted Disease of the ranking soldiers was 16.261 ± 3.78 and the level of knowledge was found to be high. A statistically significant difference was found between the total score averages of the pre-test-post-test Sexually Transmitted Disease Level of rank soldiers (p <0.05).
