The Washington Post’s Sleuth reports that the Guantanamo Bay detention facility has a gift shop advertising its detainee operations that sells windbreakers, baseball caps, and t-shirts. According to the Post, “military base officials were thrilled to have reporters buying up goodies at the gift shop for their loved ones back home”:

The left breast of the front of the shirt is emblazoned with the words “Operation Enduring Freedom” and “JTF,” which stands for Joint Task Force. The back of the shirt, in large lettering, says “JTF GTMO” and in slightly smaller font below it, “DETAINEE OPERATIONS, U.S. NAVAL STATION, GUANTANAMO BAY, CUBA.”
