Radio check: Afghan soldiers improve communications skill

An Afghan National Army solder with the Signals Kandak, 215th Corps, watches as his fellow soldiers assemble a radio antenna during training here, July 1, 2013. “They know all the characteristics of all their radio equipment,” said Staff Sgt. Leo Tapia, the radio chief with the Signals Kandak Adviser Team and a 30-year-old native of Yakima, Wash. “I quiz them on a daily basis. I ask all the soldiers questions about each radio, and they have really impressed me.”
