US plays key role in Liberia’s support to Mali
3

Armed Forces of Liberia 1st Lt. Nathanial Waka, troop commander, instructs his soldiers as they wait a U.S. military airlift aircraft to arrive at Roberts International Airport June 22, 2013. A U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III airlifted the AFL soldiers to Bamako, Mali, where the soldiers will conduct a six month peacekeeping operation. The deployment marks the AFL’s first international mission since 1960, and their first deployment as a restructured force. OOL is a U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa-led operation comprised of joint U.S. service members who mentor and advise the Armed Forces of Liberia 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.
