Armed Forces of Liberia Private 1st Class Semikeh Gbowee (center) demonstrates compliance techniques on an AFL soldier while his partner provides security during a military police basic skills course provided by Operation Onward Liberty mentors at Camp Ware's Armed Forces Training Command Feb. 27. OOL mentors brought in a Michigan Army National Guard traveling contact team to train more than 20 AFL soldiers over a two-week period on MP operations, including checkpoint control and vehicle searches. Onward Liberty is a U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa-led operation comprised of joint U.S. servicemembers who mentor and advise the AFL 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.
