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.

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

"We are honored that the U.S. Army has chosen DI to support this important program in Honduras and excited to expand our footprint in Central America," said Kenneth Juergens, group vice president, Global Logistics and Development Solutions, DynCorp International.
