John Edwards, 1st Battalion, 23rd Infantry Brigade mentor, look on during a 1st Battalion command post exercise conducted at Edward Binyah Kesselly Military Barracks March 28. Operation ONWARD LIBERTY personnel mentored 1st Battalion leaders during the exercise, which served as a rehearsal for the 23rd Infantry Brigade’s upcoming field training exercise scheduled for May. 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.
