US plays key role in Liberia’s support to Mali

U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Christopher Tolleson, 570th Global Mobility Squadron aerial porter from Travis Air Force Base, CA., guides U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Merrill Slepica, 570th GMS aerial porter, onto a scale to weigh a Mercedes-Benz 1017 4x4 cargo truck at Roberts International Airport June 22, 2013, before loading it into a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III cargo aircraft. Tolleson and Slepica flew to Monrovia to support U.S. service members deployed with Operation ONWARD LIBERTY in preparation for the Armed Forces of Liberia’s deployment to the African-led International Support Mission in Mali. 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.
