At the U.S. military's Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA) headquartered at Camp Lemonier in the tiny nation of Djibouti, most personnel live in sixteen person tents.

But some lucky base residents, after being on a lengthy waiting list, can move into these Container Living Units referred to as CLUs (pronounced "clues"). The CLUs offer more privacy and isolation from the noisy camp environment.

Nearly all base resident will be in CLUs as Camp Lemonier expands in 2007.
