Radio check: Afghan soldiers improve communications skill

Staff Sgt. Leo Tapia, the radio chief with the Signals Kandak Adviser Team, supervises Afghan National Army soldiers with the Signals Kandak, 215th Corps, during training here, July 1, 2013. “I want them to be effective communicators, so we build them from the ground up,” said Tapia, a 30-year-old native of Yakima, Wash. “I don’t want them to be out there in a real life situation and not be able to communicate.”
