Forward Operating Base Tiger
Forward Operating Base Tiger was located in the Kandahar Prvince, somewhere between Kandahar City and Tarin Kowt. The base was originally constructed by Task Force Coyote in about two weeks sometime between July and September of 2005. It was a bare bones outpost designed to be moved as road construction moved further down the road. The primary job of the forces that were stationed at FOB Tiger was to protect the Tarin Kowt road while construction and improvements proceeded through February of 2005. Soldiers would protect the engineers working on the road, conduct patrols, redirect traffic around construction and escort Explosive Ordinance Disposal units when they would discover an IED.
