    Operation Onward Liberty

    U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Gregory Starace, Armed Forces of Liberia Armed Forces Training Command mentor, returns an AFL soldier’s salute at Roberts International Airport June 22, 2013 as the soldier deploy on a peacekeeping mission in Bamako, Mali. Starace helped prepare the AFL soldiers for the mission with intensive pre-deployment training. 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.
