AFL soldiers return home from Operation Restore Hope

An Armed Forces of Liberia Corporal directs weapons and equipment turn-in for AFL soldiers returning from a four-month deployment on the Liberia and Ivory Coast border at Edward Binyah Kesselly Military Barracks Jan. 10. Approximately 220 AFL soldiers were deployed in support of Operation RESTORE HOPE as part of a joint task force with the Liberian National Police and the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization to deny Ivorian rebels the use of Liberian soil as a staging ground for attacks into the Ivory Coast. AFL senior leaders and Operation ONWARD LIBERTY mentors were on hand to welcome home the returning soldiers. ONWARD LIBERTY is a U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa-led operation comprised of joint U.S. servicemembers who mentor and advise the Armed Forces of Liberia in order to develop a national military that is responsible, operationally capable, and respectful of civilian authority and the rule of law. OOL’s goal is to assist the AFL in building a professional and capable military force that can effectively contribute to the overall security environment in Liberia.
