US plays key role in Liberia’s support to Mali

U.S. Marine Corps Gunnery Sgt. Marvin Hernandez-Garcia, Armed Forces of Liberia logistics mentor deployed with Operation ONWARD LIBERTY from Camp Courtney, Okinawa, discusses the deployment process with Armed Forces of Liberia 1st Sgt. McCarthy Gweesee at Roberts International Airport June 22, 2013. Hernandez-Garcia provided guidance as the AFL waited for a U.S. military aircraft to airlift them to Bamako, Mali, to conduct peacekeeping operations. The deployment marks the AFL’s first international mission since 1960, and their first deployment as a restructured force. OOL is a U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa-led operation comprised of joint U.S. service members 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.
