Colonel A. E. “Sparky” Renforth, the Regimental Combat Team 7 commander, awards a plaque to Lt. Col. Phridoni Tereladze, the 32nd Georgian Light Infantry Battalion commander, in recognition of the deployment the Georgian soldiers completed in support of RCT-7 April 17, here. “The contributions of the 32nd Light Infantry Battalion made a direct impact on RCT-7 and Regional Command Southwest transition from counterinsurgency operations to Security Force Assistance Operations, which set the conditions for the Afghan Army and Police forces to take the lead security responsibility in Northern Helmand Province,” according to the citation.
