U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Gregory Starace, Armed Forces of Liberia Armed Forces Training Command mentor, and U.S. Marine Corps Capt. John Edwards, AFL 1st Battalion, 23rd Infantry Brigade mentor, discuss interview techniques with AFL soldiers during sensitive site exploitation training provided by Operation ONWARD LIBERTY mentors and AFL trainers at Camp Ware March 22. The participating soldiers are in ongoing training ahead of an eventual deployment to Mali. During the course, the soldiers learned to systematically search for and collect information and materials from a given location that they may later use to facilitate operations or support criminal prosecution. ONWARD LIBERTY is a U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa-led operation comprised of joint U.S. service members 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. OOL personnel continue to mentor AFL leaders and training staff at all levels to ensure the deploying platoon is properly trained and equipped to succeed in partner-nation operations in Mali and to represent Liberia as a legitimate, capable and professional force for good.
