Kabals (Arab word for fortress) is a square patch of desert, about a mile on each side, with 10 foot tall berms bulldozed to form the perimeter. The Kablas are located less that 50 miles from the Iraqi border. They are desert outposts with dining facilities, air-conditioned sleeping tents, recreation facilities and storage for weapons, tanks and the armored vehicles. The kabals are named New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Virginia. They are beige cities of tents protected by a 10-foot high sand berm. Each camp contains large areas of tents housing roughly a half-dozen soldiers apiece, mess halls, rows of portable toilets, trailers with sinks and showers and a gym. Soldiers assigned to remote sites must maintain 24 hour operations. Some units are less that 30 miles from the Iraqi border.
