Abstract:

Conducting an effective counterinsurgency operation in the country of Afghanistan is paramount to the success of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan GIRoA. Until recently, military operations have been led and conducted mainly by the US and other willing coalition forces to drastically reduce crime and the effectiveness of the insurgency. A massive effort put on select coalition forces has produced an effective Afghan Army, not in the image of Russian Soldiers but in their own image. The development of the Afghan Army has been ongoing since 2004 and has developed into a force greater than 100,000 Soldiers, and continues to grow today. In an effort to exhibit the development and effectiveness of that force a small team has been created, The Validation and Training Team VTT. I was a part of that team.
