The Security Force Advisory and Assistance Team assigned to 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, and coalition partners, instruct Afghan National Army trainees. The instruction included a squad training exercise and machine gun familiarization course at the Regional Military Training Center in Kandahar, Afghanistan, Feb. 18.
This training is provided by members of the U.S. Army, coalition partners, and Afghan military members to young and inexperienced Afghan trainees. Prior to this course, the trainees complete the Afghan National Army basic training where they are instructed on basic military procedure, customs and courtesies and weapons training.
The course offered by the SFAAT team gives the trainees a more in-depth knowledge base, to better prepare them for their fight against the Taliban and ISIS-K insurgents.
