Training at the range near Kabul city.
Hello from Afghanistan.
I am a 14 year Police Veteran, still employed full-time in Berwyn, Illinois. I was deployed with the 33rd Brigade Combat team from the Illinois Army National Guard. Our mission here is to train and mentor the Afghanistan Police in order to bring security and stabilization to the war torn country.
My team has been training the weapons and marksmanship to the police here. Some of the challenges we overcome in the students are lack of education, communication and physical capabilities. Being that it is a thirdworld country, there is no clean water and limited electricity.
We continue to improve their state of readiness and prepare them for the streets in the war zone.
As always; stay safe, train hard and take care.
