Hiding in the midst of a bunch of other questions

Included in a 70 year-old male's medical records was his military discharge medical exam performed in 1965.

Prior to the physical exam were a series of about 50 questions: While active duty did you suffer from any of the following?

1. Joint pain
2. Trouble breathing
3. Neuritis
4. Homosexual tendencies
5. Visual problems
6. Hearing related concerns
7.-->50. etc.

I suspect the answer to #4, in 1965, was always "No."

I haven't seen the discharge form used these days but would also suspect question #4 has been deleted.
