My wife is a nurse who is interested in going out to Afghanistan as a civilian contractor. If successful she would be working at Camp Bastion. Compared to what a lot of you do in Afghanistan I appreciate that Bastion will be safe, but just how safe is it? I guess what I'm asking is are the wages high because she will have to live in a shithole for months? Or are they high because people are likely to be having a pop at her with mortars? I appreciate that nothing in life is without risk, but I would like to have a clear idea of how great the risk is before giving her my blessing.
