U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Daniel Bowen, Armed Forces of Liberia 23rd Infantry Brigade engineer mentor, coaches AFL soldiers on tactical field care during a scenario training exercise provided by Operation ONWARD LIBERTY mentors and AFL trainers at Camp Ware's Armed Forces Training Command March 27. The two-day exercise served as the culminating event of the participating AFL platoon’s month-long second phase of training, ahead of an eventual deployment to Mali, and put soldiers through realistic scenarios in which they applied the training they’d received to date. ONWARD LIBERTY is a U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa-led operation comprised of joint U.S. servicemembers who mentor and advise the AFL 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. OOL personnel continue to mentor AFL leaders and training staff at all levels to ensure the deploying platoon is properly trained and equipped to succeed in partner-nation operations in Mali and to represent Liberia as a legitimate, capable and professional force for good.
