Marine advisors take an over-the-shoulder approach to training the Afghan police

Afghan National Civil Order Police with the 2nd Kandak, 7th Brigade conduct training at the ANCOP station here, June 17, 2013. “They don’t need us to fight, or show them how to fight,” said Maj. Stephen T. Campbell, the team leader of ANCOP Advisor Team 2 and a native of Coral Springs, Fla. “They’re very aggressive—allowing us to assume a more over-the-shoulder approach since we’ve been here.”
