Approximately 200 Armed Forces of Liberia soldiers participate in redeployment training at Camp Ware's Armed Forces Training Command, Jan. 15. The soldiers returned Jan. 7 to 11 following a four-month deployment conducting border operations in support of Operation RESTORE HOPE. The training was planned and executed by AFL leadership in partnership with Operation ONWARD LIBERTY mentors. ONWARD LIBERTY is a U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa-led operation comprised of joint U.S. servicemembers 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.
