U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Charles Hooper, director, J5, Strategic Planning and Policy, United States Africa Command, talks with U.S. Army Sgt. Maj. Lester Ott, a native of Grandville, Mich., Operation Onward Liberty senior enlisted adviser, during a visit to Edward Binyah Kesselly Military Barracks on a recent visit to Liberia Feb. 10. Hooper came to Liberia to assess the progress of the AFL and its U.S. military mentorship program, Operation Onward Liberty is a group of approximately 50 U.S. military personnel who mentor and advise the AFL in order to develop a national military that is responsible, operationally capable, respectful of civilian authority and the rule of law and is a force for good among the Liberian people. While in the country, Hooper also attended events celebrating the 55th annual Liberian Armed Forces Day, including a military parade and a military ball. Other Armed Forces Day activities included a street cleanup and medical outreach, church services, an intra-AFL soccer match and a symposium regarding the status of the AFL in today’s Liberia. Ott is deployed from the 63rd Brigade, Michigan Army National Guard where he was the brigade command sergeant major.
