. . . what D&S or camp security entails overseas. . . .

Defending and securing, perhaps?  ::)

Thanks Sherlock. I was hoping for input from someone who has done the job and knows more about the every day aspect of it. Sitting in a FOB doing sentry shifts for 6 months?

It really depends on what they are expecting.  Generally it is base defence, entry control for vehs and pers, static guard posts/OPS, patrolling in/around camp, maintain security on contractors.  But it can also include a wide range of other tasks.
