U.S. Marine Cpl. Jason Misener, a 21-year-old rifleman with 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment’s Embedded Training Team, and a native of Hackettstown, N.J., teaches Afghan National Army soldiers from 2nd Kandak, 1st Brigade, 215th Corps, how to properly pack their gear during an ANA noncommissioned officer academy here, Jan. 23. Sgt. Joshua Watson, the ETT platoon sergeant, said the academy— the first-ever in Garmsir district — gave the Afghan NCOs an opportunity to develop their leadership skills based on the Marines’ guidance on “how to set the standard.” The Marines prepared their Afghan counterparts to lead physical training sessions, to account for and properly pack their gear, and conducted weapons handling and calibration exercises.
