ISAF commander visits Regional Command-South

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan – Earlier today, Gen. Dan McNeill, ISAF commander, made his first visit to Regional Command-South (RC-S) as the new commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan.

During his visit with Maj. Gen. Ton van Loon, RC-S commander, General McNeill also had the opportunity to speak with the respective provincial governors of Helmand, Kandahar and Zabul, along with the commander of the 205th Afghanistan National Army Corps and the regional commander of the Afghanistan National Police.

β€œIt was a very worthwhile and beneficial first visit for the newly appointed COMISAF to Regional Command-South, particularly since COMISAF had the opportunity to meet with southern Afghan government representatives and confer about concerns within their respective provinces,” said Squadron Leader Dave Marsh.
