"This is like a correctional facility," said 25-year-old Specialist Lashunda Townes. "We sleep in bunk beds, 30 to a room. We can't get off base when we want. What are you to do?"

The problem for the facility's organisers is how to keep the troops happy while not breaching contemporary standards of morality, as defined by the Pentagon and their Arab hosts.
