I'm talking to this guy in the Marines and he sent me an email today saying he wouldn't be able to call Saturday through Wednesday because he would be "in the field". Uhm, not exactly sure what that means! Lol, can someone help me out?

Probably means he's gotta spend some time on the other civie girls that he talks to on a regular basis. Don't be a Marine hog.

Marines/Soldiers train all the time and not all training can be conducted in a class room or the motor pool or barracks, some times they go out on maneuvers (aka in the field) to play war games.

Cell phones are typically frowned upon in a field environment.

When service members are doing any variety of training they term it as being "in the field". During this time they are generally staying in tents, training for missions, conducting live fire exercises, weapons ranges and any other variety of military training.

They are generally unable to use phones (depending on location), will not have access to the internet, television and many other creature comforts. Another main difference is that the service member will generally eat MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) versus general food.

Probably doing training exercises. These are done outside of the main compound. This area is called the field. He won't be near a phone or computer.

It means that he will be out in the woods/desert/water...whatever environment he happens to be in for training. There are typically no phones or Internet cafes and most units don't allow cell phones, if there is even any coverage at all.
