Afghan soldiers now teaching Afghan policemen at RPG Range
At the Joint Sustainment Academy Southwest in Helmand province, Afghan National Security Forces typically get their military training from US Marine instructors. On the 14th of June, for the first time, Afghan Uniformed policemen attending the course received training from Afghan National Army soldiers from the Afghan Small Arms Weapons Instructor’s Course.
The intent of the event was to show the Marine instructors that the ANA soldiers taking part in the weapons course can conduct instructional operations, and that the policemen can use that knowledge and be successful.
The soldiers set up the range by organizing training lanes with cones and preparing a shaded area for the students on a day where temperatures exceeded 100 degrees. Afghan student instructors gave a detailed brief to ensure safety.
