Training Afghan Security Forces

A portion of the Polish troops are dedicated to training Afghan National Security Forces. This is mostly done by Special Forces units, akin to U.S. Green Berets. Once the SF teams got to know me they were happy to have me along on some of their missions.
Here Polish SF soldiers train Afghan National Police (ANP) in a day at the firing range.

The Polish soldiers told me the ANP were making great progress – some who couldn’t even hit the target at 10 feet a week ago, were able to hit the bullseye at 100 feet today.

The ANP also receive basic emergency combat medical training – and as usual, they are pleased as peach to have their picture taken by a woman.
