    Operation Onward Liberty

    U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Leonardo Lapaix, a transportation management supervisor from Caserma Ederle, Italy, secures an Armed Forces of Liberia truck in the cargo bay of a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III at Roberts International Airport June 22, 2013. Lapaix helped U.S. service members deployed with Operation ONWARD LIBERTY to enable the deployment of AFL soldiers to Bamako, Mali. 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.
