Armed Forces of Liberia soldiers from 1st Platoon, 23rd Infantry Brigade coordinate squad movements against simulated opposing forces during a military operations in urban terrain course provided by Operation ONWARD LIBERTY mentors at Camp Ware May 30. The MOUT course provided soldiers with training on various-sized unit movements through potentially dangerous urban areas ahead of an eventual deployment to Mali. 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. 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.
