The official command -serrbar- does precisely this.

Has anyone found/written/adapted a program which will plot means +/- sd
for observations of Y over categories X, without drawing a connecting
line between means (as in grby)? The desired solution would be like
'graph box Y, over(X)' except that box would be a single symbol with
upper and lower ranges for sd or sd. Nick cox' civplot is close, but
doesn't allow sd's. 
I've gotten around this by using joanne garrett's 'predxat' but that
plots se's not sd's.

I understand some of the reasons why not to use this sort of display,
but it does occasionally become useful to display data.
