This post is dedicated to my URF. Phonetically "ur-f". The actual acronym is "Unit Request of Forces", meaning the Army, which is pretty strapped for people, asked for assistance for each mission and billet to accomplish that mission from other services. Each URF has its own number to track its mission, personnel and status. An URF can be as big as 18 or so, but our URF is
only 2 people. So my bunkmate, Steve, and I are an URF. As a nickname I call him URF a lot. It is good to have a battle buddy you can count on in these types of situations. Thanks URF.
Friday and Saturday were Afghanistan specific big picture medical lectures, with lots of reference material on disc in case we need it later.
