U.S. Army report on the Ianfu after WW2

Here is the document. It says
A "comfort girl" is nothing more than a prostitute or "professional camp follower" attached to the Japanese Army for the benefit of the soldiers.

I think it is deceptive to quote the line you have quoted without also including this line in the same document which is the important issue behind recruitment, especially in the colonial context:

"The nature of this "service" was not specified but it was assumed to be work connected with visiting the wounded in hospitals, rolling bandages, and generally making the soldiers happy."
