First Lt. Joseph M. Russell (center), a Richmond Heights, Ohio, native and the adviser for the Afghan National Army’s 215th Corps communications officer, poses with soldiers from the 215th Corps communications section. Sergeant Alan Coleman (bottom right), a Fountain Valley, Calif., native and the enlisted adviser for the 215th Corps communications section, helped with Russell’s efforts to encrypt all of the radios within the 215th Corps. He advised the enlisted Afghan soldiers on how to build, clean, maintain and encode the encryption on all the radios. The team of approximately 20 soldiers serves the 14,000 soldiers of the 215th Corps.
