Communications training, radio upgrades enhance AFL’s operational capability

An Armed Forces of Liberia soldier field tests a CODAN 2110 Manpack Transceiver during a radio familiarization class at Camp Ware, Liberia, Sept. 11, 2013. With support from the U.S. Embassy Office of Security Cooperation, OOL mentors delivered a package of CODAN radios and provided training on the equipment to AFL communications soldiers. OOL provides mentorship to the AFL to produce a capable, respected force able to protect Liberian interests in the West African region. In addition, OOL is developing the leadership capabilities of the officers and noncommissioned officers to maintain a professional and credible military force with a reputation as a “force for good” among the Liberian people.
