Armed Forces of Liberia completes annual weapons qualification

Armed Forces of Liberia Private 1st Class Boye Mussah, Headquarters AFL public affairs specialist, fires downrange during annual weapons qualification at Edward Binyah Kesselly Military Barracks April 2. Musah fired a perfect 40 out of 40, his fifth straight year doing so. The headquarters joint staff's qualification marked the completion of a month-long process in which approximately 1,900 AFL soldiers qualified on their primary weapon system, the AK-47 assault rifle. Operation ONWARD LIBERTY personnel were on hand to mentor range officers and provide encouragement to their AFL counterparts. ONWARD LIBERTY is a U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa-led operation comprised of joint U.S. service members 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.
