The meaning and reason for naming Forward Operating Base Colorado ( FOB Colorado) came from the two current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan since the attack on 9/11 on American Soil. Our brave men and women serving in the U.S. Military have established outposts that all branches of service operate out of, they are called FOB/Forward Operating Bases, which is where they conduct their missions for combat. A FOB is considered a safe zone or home base. It is known that if they can make it back to there FOB then they are 'home'. This is where they live for each deployment for at least a year.
The Colorado portion of the name originated from it being a 'personal and magical' healing spot for all of those who have taken part in the outdoor adventures we provide. For those of us that live here in Colorado can acknowledge the personal beauty that srounds us, keeping in mind that many Veterans we bring up come from all over the United States. It allows them to experience other areas of the state and gets them out of their base life.
The name recognition was established in collaboration with a friend and fellow Army veteran MSG Jose Espinoza, U.S. Army Retired and myself, Tom Torres, U.S. Army Airborne Veteran.
