FALLS CHURCH, Va., Dec. 6 (UPI) -- Base operational support services for U.S. defense forces in Honduras are to be provided by DynCorp International under a contract worth as much as $22 million.

The services at Soto Cano Air Base, in support of Joint Task Force Bravo, include engineering; laundry; supply support; morale, welfare and recreation; equipment maintenance; and food service.

Ground transportation, air transportation, security, and petroleum, oil and lubricant services will also be provided.
