U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Robert Gutman, Operation ONWARD LIBERTY combat medic mentor, coaches Armed Forces of Liberia soldiers on care under fire during a combat lifesaver course provided by Operation ONWARD LIBERTY mentors at Camp Ware's Armed Forces Training Command March 6. OOL mentors and AFL medics trained a platoon of more than 60 AFL soldiers on tactical combat casualty care during the two-day course. 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.
