A Forward Operating Base. Any secured forward military position that is used to support tactical operations. A FOB may or may not contain an airfield, hospital, or other facilities. The base may be used for an extended period of time. FOBs are traditionally supported by main operating bases that are required to provide backup support to them. A FOB also reduces reaction time and increases time on task to forces operating from it.
FOB Dagger is currently based in Tikrit, Iraq.

noun. Abbreviation: Fresh of the Boat. Pronounced "Fahb". A person, most often of Asian descent, so new to the country that they don't understand much of Western culture and customs. Usually indicates weak command of the English language as well.
We met some hot Japanese fobs in Arcadia the other day.
That girl's nice, but she's too much of a fob for me.
