US plays key role in Liberia’s support to Mali

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Merrill Slepica, 570th Global Mobility Squadron aerial porter from Travis Air Force Base, Calif., positions an Armed Forces of Liberia Mercedes-Benz 1017 4x4 truck on a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III cargo aircraft at Roberts International Airport June 22, 2013. Slepica helped U.S. service members deployed with Operation ONWARD LIBERTY to enable the deployment of AFL soldiers to Bamako, 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.
