why would they send a surgical tech with the army also ? He is going for trauma training , then mp training and then combat training. I am pretty sure that is normal but I am concerned that he is going with the army to an fob .. forward operating base does anyone know about those bases please he is only 20 and i am so worried thanks for your answer

Coming from a surgical tech(in the army). the fob that he should be at should be larger and better equipped then most of them. He wont be out on the front line....he will stay in the camp and the medics will bring the wounded to him. I know it is hard to not worry about him when he is over there but just hang in there. I know there are a lot of people on here that you can talk to and also im sure you have friends that wouldn't mind a freek out or two lol. Just try not to worry yourself to much. You can send him a care package and he would love that....but if you do that make sure you throw in a few hygiene things in there for him...that's what they seem to run out of the most. I wish him the best of luck and I hope that he comes home safe as well as the rest of his unit.

My husband has deployed 3 times already and is currently on his 4th. The FOBs are just the camps that they stay at, as a surg tech he would probably be at a larger base with a hospital. A lot of the bigger bases are filled with things that the guys are used to, shopping, food, a gym, movies. It is difficult while they are gone, he has the best training for what he is doing. I know it's hard but try not to dwell on your fears, it can make you crazy if you let it. Hang in there.
