Pheophilus Duo, Headquarters AFL communications officer, during annual weapons qualification at Edward Binyah Kesselly Military Barracks April 2. The headquarters joint staff's qualification marked the completion of a month-long process in which approximately 1,900 AFL soldiers qualified on their primary weapon system, the AK-47 assault rifle. 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.
