Forward Operating Base Scorpion
Forward Operating Base Scorpion is located in the southern part of Afghanistan, in Kandahar Province.
As of June, 2008 it was the headquarters of the Regional Police Advisory Command South, which had the responsibility of training checking up with ANP units in Southern Afghanistan. FOB Scorpion coordinates the efforts of the Police Mentor Teams made up of coalition soldiers who are scattered throughout southern Afghanistan making sure ANP units have what they need, that they're getting paid and that they retain the discipline they learn in training.
Scorpion's a small outpost in a dangerous part of Afghanistan, like many other FOB's however there are some creature comforts, soldier's here have their own dining facility and there's a Morale, Welfare and Recreation Center (MWR) that had pool, ping pong and some videogames.
