French OMLT arrives in Uruzgan

KABUL, Afghanistan - ISAF’s French Operational Mentoring and Liaison Team (OMLT) recently arrived at a base in Uruzgan province.

The team had driven from Kandahar Airfield in a convoy of 94 vehicles guarded by Afghan National Army and ISAF forces.

“It was one of the biggest convoys in Regional Command South in years. We were filling up about 7 kilometres of the road,” said Captain Ralph, commander of the convoy.

The French OMLT will provide training and support to the infantry battalions of the ANA in Uruzgan.
